The showProperties() function has the form:

showProperties <maxwrapper_object> [ <property_pattern> ] [ to:<stream> ]

where <maxwrapper_object> is the 3ds Max entity to be inspected, the optional <property_pattern> is a wild-card pattern that names the properties to be inspected, and the optional to:<stream> keyword argument specifies a Stream Value to output the display to.

eg make a box and use showProperties $box01

You can just use show as a shortcut

show $box01

You can use classof for that

tp = teapot()
classof tp.smooth
classof tp.radius
classof tp.segs


$Teapot:Teapot01 @ [0.000000,0.000000,0.000000]
