Greetings,

I can get the name of the stack, list the cards of that stack, and list 
the objects of the card(s).  But when I try to apply code for getting 
the text of one of the objects I get the following error:

compiling at 5:48:47 PM
Type	Commands: missing ','
Object	ObjectsList
Line	put the text of varTempObject of card varTempCard of stack 
varTempStack into varTempResult
Hint	into


The line of code is this:

put the text of varTempObject of card varTempCard of stack varTempStack 
into varTempResult

varTempStack holds the name of the stack, varTempCard holds the name of 
the card.  varTempObject holds the type and name of the object, such as:

button "Button1"

So the line of the code in question would look like this:

put the text of button "Button1" of card "MainCard" of stack "MainStack" 
into varTempResult

And I don't understand the error at all.  I am not aware of having to 
add any comma in this situation.

Does anyone understand this?  Or can someone tell me if I am coding this 
wrong?

Thanks,
-Garrett
