I was totally wrong; it's much more intelligent than that. It caches
multiple recently used IDs, not just the very latest one - so it's
probably quite a bit more than 5 lines. New code to demonstrate this ...
put the millisecs into t1
put the id of button tName into tID
put the id of button tName1 into tID1
repeat 10000 times
put the short name of control id tID into t
put the short name of control id tID1 into t
put the millisecs-t1 && t &CR after msg
I'm more convinced that it has been done well
I'm less convinced the performance saving was worth the
implementation effort :-)
