Passing control name to fucntion!?

Hi all,

 I'm wondering if it's posible to pass the name of the control to a function:
eg: I have a 3 Msflexgrid's - Msflexgrid1(1 rows, 3cols),Msflexgrid2(4 rows, 3cols),Msflexgrid3(2 rows, 3cols). When click on a button I'm calling a funtion which will do some calculation involving these 3 grids.
My question is, can I send the name of the controls (Msflexgrid1,2,3) and use them trhough the function?
