Not sure what you mean. The whole Help is full of functions, parameters and variables. But you cannot find a list of them because that list would be huge.
The MAXScript Editor in Max 2008 and higher acquires the list of all functions, parameters and keywords straight from the MAXScript core, so there is no text file containing a color coding (lexer) definition. If you add a 3rd party plugin to Max, all its MAXScript exposure is automatically added to the list of available functions and the new editor will color-code them correctly.

Some people have written more or less large lexer lists for external 3rd party editors, you might want to search for one of those, but it wouldn't be complete.

He was probably looking in the max reference, as opposed to the maxscript reference...

Thank you very much for your help.

Hmm, yeah I was thinking of a list... but now I guess this isn't a good idea, Bob you are right, this would be a long list.... lol:

But is it possible to readout all the objects I do have in a scene file through the listener ?
And if so, what's the command for ?

could be as simple as showproperties $ from the selected object... hmm.. but I really can't find such simple command......

thx for every little help,

you could try printing out all the objects in the scene and add a for loop to show their properties... something as simple as this:

for o in objects do
(
print o.name
print (classof o)
showproperties o
)
but as you can imagine if your scene has something like 100 objects it could take upto 15 seconds for this to list out everything and the list is already huge...
