Very useful, but an odd format. This is on LC 5.5.1. Can others confirm that the output is similar with later versions of LC? I want to be sure that I can delete word 4 to -1 of line 1 and reliably get just a list of handlers.

Hi, Peter.

For similar results, but without the "odd format" and with added flexibility to control the scope of effect, you can use function handlerList( tObject, tIncludeBehaviorHandlers, tIncludePrivateHandlers ). So if you want to include behavior handlers and private handlers of tObject, the expression is handlerList( tObject, "true", "true" ).
