How to open the ScriptController Rollout via Maxscript ?

I i am looking for a way to open the ScriptController Rollout by Maxscript.
This is the little window that open when clicking on the properties of a scripted controller in the trackview for example.

I am making an interface where i can edit each morph script controller, i want to add a button where the user can click and edit the script fast.

I searched the maxscript refference, and internet but did'nt found any solution.
Is there a way to do this ?

Thanks for the help,

I might be wrong, but I don't think you can. You could just script your own editor though.

where #thescriptcontroller# is the actual scripted controller you are trying to access, try -

  displayControlDialog #thescriptcontroller# "Waheey!"

the string at the end is what is in the dialog title bar, so waheey is optional

Yes I use that for spring controllers as well:

for i in (getClassInstances positionSpring as array) do displayControlDialog i ""

This code pops up all spring controllers in the scene, which otherwise would be a tedious task just finding them in the trackview...
