Finding out that a control is a button is often just the starting point - I
needed to know what type of button it was - push button, default button,
option menu button, combobox button, a popup menu button, checkbox, radio
button, tab control, etc.  If you need to be that specific,  in addition to
checking word 1 of the abbrev name, you have to check the style and menumode
properties to figure all that out.
