select object - store highest CV

How would you store a value or create a locater at the highest point in Y by just selecting an object? Through a sriptJob?

I'll try that method.

I can do what I want using the -bb flag if the objects bottom is at Y 0


select obj;
float $array[6] = `xform -q -bb`;
print $array[4];
