Given the XML file created by Glade write the following functions:

my @names   = get_all_widget_names(); # all the names
my @widgets = get_all_widges();       # all the objects
my $widget  = get_widget($name);      # an object representing the widget
$widget->get_handler($name);          # name of the handler function 
$widget->get_property($name);
$widget->set_property($name, $value);
