hover

Report object scripting names

Description

hover sends out the scripting names of any object over which the cursor is hovering.
Note: The hover object does not output anything when the mouse is over objects that do not respond to mouse clicks. This includes the panel and comment objects as well as any object whose Ignore Click attribute is set. In addition, the hover object uses the front-to-back ordering of objects in a patcher to determine the top-most object under the mouse.

Arguments

None.
