id

Arguments: menu-item

This function is deprecated. The methods for dialog-item and timer should not be needed by applications, and name should be used instead for header-info and tab-info.

For a dialog-item or menu-item, returns an arbitrary number assigned by the OS to the object to uniquely identify it. This number is not normally needed by a common graphics application.

For a tab-info or header-info, returns (or sets with setf) an arbitrary symbol that is used to uniquely identify the item among the items on its control. It is recommended that the function name be used in place of id, since name is now intended to work with any arbitrary object, though id remains for backward compatibility.

For a timer object, returns the unique id (which is not setf'able). id is a property of the timer class.
