As I'd written, it returns all properties which are returned in "the
properties", as in:
get the properties of button 1
This includes read-only properties like ID.
If you find any properties not returned by that function submit a
Bugzilla report and when they fix it in the engine it'll automatically
work in 4W Props too.

The only difference I'm away of with buttons is for those which are used
I've been wanting to build a reference tool for that too -- it seems a
natural compliment to 4W Props. If we had a built-in function I'd have
it done by now, but alas tools that take more time away from client work
than they save me have a way of falling toward the bottom of the
priority list here... ;)
This type of essential reference sounds like a good job for RunRev.
I'll happily build it for them if they're up for a contractor....
