public static method GetStateObject(t: Type, controlID: int): object;
public static object GetStateObject(Type t, int controlID);


Get a state object from a controlID.

This will return a recycled state object that is unique for controlID. If there is no state object then a new one will be created and hooked up to the controlID.

On the first call into GetStateObject a new state object will be created. The controlID uniquely refers to this object. On subsequent calls the stored object will be returned.
