applies to all above solutions.

see above.

To make something send a bang, you could put some [bng] objects behind
your whatever text displaying objects. Interestingly, hidden GUI objects
have priority over visible objects when clicked. Another way is to use a
construct like the following to make a slider send bangs only when
clicked, but not when dragged:

[t a a]
[sel 0]
