is the variable named "txt_CodePath" or is it named "CodePath"? Not only
should you should not need to declare your frame objects in the SCL code,
but if you do so you will get a compile failure with a message like:

The four level name is shown as the four-level class name on the class
help. You can get if you right-click on the component in the "Components"
window, or on the object in the left-hand pane of the "Properties" window,
and choose "Help on Class".
(You can also go directly to the page for the class in the SAS/AF Component
Reference, which is part of the online SAS help.)
I'm not sure exactly which class you mean by "text box", though--a text
entry control is SASHelp.Classes.TextEntry_c.class, and a text label
control is SASHelp.Classes.TextLabel_c.class.
