How we access the objects inside a form.

To be more precise, I want to set the contents of a
MultilineEdit object while pressing a button object.

Of course we can modify the .c file generated by FDesign
and do it. But this will make the form as the final version;
I mean if we want to change the form again through FDesign then
the modifications will overwritten.

So I've another source file to hold the callbacks.

Actually we can use prev, next pointers in the FL_OBJECT.
But I found that the objects are not in the same order both in
the source lines and the list of objects. I guess the list
is randomly built, and possibly it is using the creation order.

How we get hold of this list. Can we name each object in a
form and further use that label to identify the objects?

Can anyone give some ideas related to it?

Thanks in advance.
