; NAME:
;    GET_OBJECT_ID
;
; PURPOSE:
;
;    The purpose of this function is to be able to obtain a unique
;    object identifier string for a heap variable (object or pointer).

; CATEGORY:
;
;    Utility.
;
; CALLING SEQUENCE:
;
;    objectID = Get_Object_ID(theObject)
;
; INPUTS:
;
;    theObject:    The object or pointer for which an identifier is requested. If
;                  this is a null object, the function returns the string
;                  "NullObject". If it is a null pointer, "NullPointer". 
;
; OUTPUTS:
;
;    objectID:     The unique object or pointer identifier.
;
; KEYWORDS:
;
;    NUMBER:       If this keyword is set, the function returns the unique
;                  number identifier associated with a valid pointer or object.
;                  The number is returned as a STRING variable. The string 
;                  "-999" is returned if the pointer or object is invalid and
;                  this keyword is set.
;
; EXAMPLE:
;
;    Create a trackball object and obtain its unique object ID.
;
;       IDL> theObject = Obj_New('TRACKBALL', [100,100], 50)
;       IDL> objectID = Get_Object_ID(theObject, NUMBER=number)
;       IDL> Print, objectID
;               ObjHeapVar71(TRACKBALL)
;       IDL> Print, number
;               71
;
; MODIFICATION HISTORY:
;
;    Written by: David W. Fanning, 4 September 2003.
;    Added NUMBER keyword. DWF, 22 September 2008.
