thanks, but I was thinking about the gui objects. anyway that's nice.

I am working on a abstraction which edits gui objects much faster than  
typing parameters, but I can't do more than follow the standard messages,  
I'm not a programmer.
I wanted to know if it would be possible to get the parameters of an  
existing gui-obj, but well, it'll have to go without it.
When a prototype is ready I'll sent it to the list.
