You can use a custompropertyset using array notation too.

set the myproperty["uName"] of button 1 to "Fred is dead"
set the myproperty["uBirthday"] of button 1 to "Hatched not born"

Then you can: put the myproperty["uName"] of button 1 and it'll say "fred
is dead"

In this way you don't have to schlep the whole array in and out all the
time, while still having the advantages of using array notation.
