Hi Daniel,

Yes, something of a black box...  While $makelist returns things for ref.$attributes, you can't use the standard approach to access the elements of the group, i.e. ref.$attributes.1.$name will not return what $makelist returns for the first attribute.  And ref.$att(n) doesn't seem to follow the same ordering found in the ref.$attributes.$makelist output.

In the session/statement inspection windows I've done, I just hard-coded the properties, since they're mostly common across DAMs.  Maybe Omnis support could shed some light on whether or not introspection is possible?
