Yes. This is what gets executed when a face in the list gets clicked.

Yes. I set 'row to 'count so that I can access that value outside of the
supply func, in this case I do it specifically so we can set 'selected to
the current row/count value when a face is clicked.
There is nothing list specific about using style, I am just using it as a
shortcut to provide the action block to all the columns by creating a style
with that as its action.
I don't have time to check your code now, but will have a look when I get
home. But I suspect that you understand how to fix it now.
