Hi Felix,
thanks for your code. I will give it a try.

But this gives me another idea. Perhaps Display.Broadcast MAKES sense in my case.
Because I know the name of the document I expect my object to be contained !
So perhaps taking the document (or the panel it contains) as context for FindObj()
could save my day.
So I have another question:
Can I find a document with a given name if it's opened ?

Cheers, Edgar
