How can I pass an object to a function in SilkTest?

ANSWER
----------------------------------

In essence you are passing a window as an argument to a function by following this example:

[ ]// TESTCASE
[ ]// this testcase calls the ClickButton method and passes the
[ ]// identifier/pathway of the object through as a variable of type window
[ ] 
[-] testcase one () appstate none
    [ ] window Button1 = GMO.EnterGMOOnLine
    [ ] window Button2 = GMO.AboutTheGMOSite
    [ ] window Button3 = GMO.BrowserTestPage
    [ ] 
    [ ] ClickButton (Button1)
    [ ] Sleep (1)
    [ ] ClickButton (Button2)
    [ ] Sleep (1)
    [ ] ClickButton (Button3)
    [ ] Sleep (1)
[ ] 
[ ] 
[ ] 
[ ] 
[ ] // FUNCTION
[ ] // this function accepts a window variable and then uses it to
[ ] // return the caption and click the button that the window variable 
[ ] // specifies...
[-] ClickButton (window Button)
    [ ] 
    [ ] print (Button.GetCaption ())
    [ ] Button.Click ()
    [ ] Browser.Back.Click ()


NOTE: This example uses the GMO client server test application.
