Mark is spot on about using the "dispatch" command, but remember that if 
you write a repeat loop as in:

on mouseUp
    repeat with y = 1 to the number of controls
       dispatch yourMessage with yourParams to control y
    end repeat
end mouseUp

you will only get the controls on the current card. You asked about all 
controls in memory. Did you mean on other cards? In other stacks? You need to 
catch those as well.
