Discussion 

TOPPARENT is an alias for the top-most form or browse. Assume that a form called F1 contains a sub-form called SubF1. SubF1 has a button called B1. A script attached to B1 that referred to ParentForm would be referring to SubF1, while a reference to TopParent would be referring to F1. Note : TopParent is never preceded by a colon ":".

count = obj.children()   'find out how many child objects it has
