Subject Re: How to retrieve wtkx:id?

I understand why you might expect it to work that way, especially if you are coming from HTML,
but it doesn't. Consider that Java member variables are also accessible via reflection, but
you still can't get a variable name from a class instance. WTKX isn't a DOM - it's just another
way of instantiating classes.

Hope that helps clarify things.

is no way to retrieve a variable name from an object instantiated in Java, there is no way
to retrieve an ID from an object declared in WTKX.
