I am doing some generic programming using formspider. One important requirement is to check whether an object is present before I am able to use it. For example I should be able to check whether a panel, component etc is present before I use it. I tried the getid function. It returns correct value if object is present. Otherwise it generates an error. If getid returned 0 or any other predefined constant I could use it for this purpose. I am looking for something similar to find_item,find_canvas etc in Oracle forms.

Why do you need this? In Formspider, all objects are present all the time. They are created when you reference them. Could you explain what you are trying to achieve please?
