i have tested this here, and it works:

'start code ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Main

   'Get tool information
   newtool = GetSelectedTool()      ' get the newtool
   acttool = GetCurrentTool()      ' get the acttool   
   Message "New Tool = " &newtool
   Sleep(200)

   ' new and acttool = 0
   If ((newtool = 0) and (acttool = 0)) Then
      message("new and old tool = 0 -> abort toolchange  !")
      Sleep(500)
      Exit Sub
   End If   

      ' new tool = 0
   If (newtool = 0) Then
      DoButton(1003)
      message("new tool = 0 -> abort toolchange  !")
      Sleep(500)
      Exit Sub
   End If   

   ' new and acttool are the same
   If newtool = acttool Then
      message("acttool and newtool are the same -> do nothing!")
      Sleep(500)
      Exit Sub
   End If
 
   'check toolnumber in range
   If  (((newtool > 14) Or (newtool < 1)) And (newtool <> 0)) Then
      DoButton(1003)
      Message (" toolnumber " & newtool & " is not in range (1-" &MaxTool &"). abort toolchange  ! ")
      MsgBox (" toolnumber " & newtool & " is not in range (1-" &MaxTool &"). abort toolchange  ! ")
      Exit Sub
   End If      

   'toolnumber 1 mastertool
   If  newtool = 1 Then
      Code ("G52 X0 Y0")
   End If      

   'toolnumber 2
   If  newtool = 2 Then
      Code ("G52 X32 Y0")
   End If      

   'toolnumber 3
   If  newtool = 3 Then
      Code ("G52 X64 Y0")
   End If      

'And so ON


      
   'set new tool
   SetCurrentTool( newtool )
   Code ("G43 H" & newtool)
   Message " "

End Sub
'end code ------------------------------------------------------------------------

depending on your Motion Controller you can run your spindle in step/dir mode as well.
also the servo Controller supports a PZ+/PZ- Signal witch is a single pulse per rev. that can
be used for a index Input. i use this signals on my machines for indexed homing on the Motion axes.

so if the instruction itselv is running in VB Script Editor, it must also run in button script.

just make sure that you have pressed ENTER after the instruction to have a empty line
under the code.

SetProbeState(True) 'disable Active Low of probe input
SetProbeState(False) 'enable Active Low of probe Input

there is no "global" answer for this, it is allways depending on your Controller.

witch Controller are you using?
any documentation avaliable?
