Referring to objects

You can refer to objects from a script in several ways.

• An object's name is the value found in its Info dialog box. For example:


You should use quotation marks around an object's name so that NovoCard recognizes it literally and doesn't look for a variable by that name. NovoCard interprets card("10")as card named 10; it interprets card(10) as card number 10.

• An object's number represents its position among like objects within the object that contains it. Buttons, fields, pictures, portals, and shapes are ordered within a card or background. Cards and backgrounds are ordered within a stack.


Changing the order of a button, field, picture, portal, shape, card, or background changes its number.
