Turning graphic effects off and on

Hi folks,

I think I've done this, but I can't for the life of me remember how. In the property inspector for an object you can set up a graphic effect, and then use the checkbox to turn the effect off and on. LC somehow remembers your settings. But I want to do this by scripting. I know I can set each key of the effect separately, like this:

  set the colorOverlay["color"] of btn "foo" to "1,2,3"
  set the colorOverlay["opacity"] of btn "foo" to 160

But is there a way to simulate just checking and unchecking the checkbox in the property inspector in a script?
