*selected-object*

This variable holds the value that was returned by the most recent invocation of the IDE's Tools | Return Selected Object command. Typically you would evaluate the symbol * just after using the command to access the returned value, but *selected-object* allows you to access the value when it is no longer held in *, **, or *** (since those variables are modified with each evaluation in the listener).

The symbol *selected-object* will also appear in an IDE Listener's drop-down history for any invocation of Tools | Return Selected Object. The reason is that this command works by first setting the value of *selected-object* to be the value returned by a call to selected-object in the currently selected window, and then doing a top-level evaluation on the symbol *selected-object*, just as if you had evaluated that symbol in the listener.
