Get list of all objects on a card?

local tcontrolList
get the number of controls in <obj>
repeat with n = 1 to it
   put the long name of control n of <obj> & return after tcontrolList
end repeat

the long name is quite specific and has all the info you need.

this is not tested but you can get the idea. you can then filter the 
object types by what's in the first part of each line.
