The long, abbreviated, and short owner formats are described in detail in the entries for the name and ID properties. If you don't specify a format, the abbreviated owner is reported.

The owner of a main stack is empty.

The owner of a substack is its main stack.

The owner of a card is the stack it resides in.

The owner of a grouped control is its group.

The owner of a card is the card it resides on.
