 ? Sys3 Heirarchy:Texts, Display, Viewers, Objects

Hi All,

I'm trying to do:
FOR <all viewers in user-track>
 DoJob.

How do I access the "all viewers in user-track" ?
Are they on a linked-list ?
Rooted where ?
Better still: what is the heirarchy/object-structure of the 'display screen' ?

From Chapter5.Text , I've extracted/diagramed ( the little understood ):

The Object type hierarchy

Objects.Object
       Display.Frame                     <-- visual objects
           Gadgets.Frame
               Visual Gadgets
       Gadgets.Object                   <--  non-visual objects
          Model Gadgets

                       ====structure of the display space====
Display Root
       User Track
           Viewer
                  Menu Frame
                       NamePlate
                       Button
                   TextGadget
                        Panel
                            Button
       System Track
            Viewer
                  Menu Frame
                       NamePlate
                       Button
                   TextGadget
                        Panel
                            Button

 How does the distinction of 'different viewer types' (* ie. opened with
Edit.Open or ( Desktops.Open & Script.Open )  *), fit the above scheme ?

Any pointers much appreciated. Thanks.         Chris Glur.
