Let's start this conversation up. I'm a heavy Frame programmer
and I have yet to discover an undocumented method. It is not always
easy to trace the origins of all methods linked to an object. But if
you follow the objects inheritance path back to the OBJECT class, you
should find every method documented.
I spoke with Ivy at SAS Institute for some time on this subject
and she tells me they have a huge hierarchy chart somewhere that
provides a breakdown each Frame object and all of it's inherited
methods. I wish I could get my hands on a copy.
