It says it's a string so it probably has to be wrapped in quotes ie. $.DeformerType = "bones". Though I'm getting a **system exception** every time I even try to access the .deformerType property so I don't know for sure.

If I put in the listener "show $" I get:
.DeformerType : TSTR
.MuscleName : TSTR
.Colour : color
etc. etc...

So it's clearly a property of the object but when I try to access it...

$.DeformerType returns **system exception**
$.MuscleName returns "CATMuscle001"
$.Colour returns (color 8 61 138)
