Object Path

The objects of a dialog are linked hierarchically, according to the visual hierarchy.

Each object has a name. The name may consist of upper and lower-case letters, numbers, and the "_" character. The name is not case-sensitive.

In order to reference (access) an object you must specify its path.

The object path is always unique.


The following dialog contains a statictext, a groupbox with two radiobuttons, and a pushbutton.

The internal structure reflects the visual hierarchy:

The object path precisely expresses this hierarchy.

Dialog.Group.Radio1 is thus the path for the radiobutton "Radio1" in the groupbox "Group" in the dialog "Dialog".
