in thread Child objects querying parent objects about themselves

Thanks. As far as the \$parent typo, i've already got it correct in my code... just not when i typed it into SOPW. Thanks for the heads up though.

As for the method you described ... this is probably the best way to do it... naturally... if this becomes too much overhead, i'll have to make the coords redundant somewhere, as described in jdporter's comment.
