Reading Chart Objects

I have a very simple developer question. I have been looking through the documentation and can't find the answer.

Is it possible for an indicator to read objects (e.g. lines) on the chart (that it did not create)? I assume this is possible, just need to have it confirmed before I start diving into development with Sierra Chart.

I'm asking because I am looking to create an indicator that will log information about objects that I create a on the charts, e.g. lines on a chart would have their color, location, price, etc. logged.
