Get the current value of an object using its scripting name?

    Dec 17 2011 | 9:55 pm
    Hi there,
    I have a set of widgets -- sliders and knobs, etc -- and I know the scripting name of each widget. I'm aware that I can send them new values from within a Java external using MaxBox.send(value).
    Is it possible to use a similar function to read their current values? Something like MaxBox.getFloat()? I couldn't find anything relevant in the javadocs...
