  Objects and Complements
An indirect object (which, like a direct object, is always a noun or pronoun) is, in a sense, the recipient of the direct object.
An object complement is similar to a subject complement, except that (obviously) it modifies an object rather than a subject.
In this case, the noun "driver" is the direct object of the verb "consider," but the adjective "tired" is still acting as its complement.

 Grammar of English -- Chapter 4
Passivization is a way to distinguish between objects (both direct and indirect) on the one hand and subject predicates, object predicates, and adverbials on the other, as we'll see in the next chapter.
Indirect objects can be passivized as well, and in a sentence with both a direct and indirect object, it is the indirect object that becomes the subject.
However, to show that both the direct and indirect object in (37) are objects, I have drawn them as sisters to the V: There are ways of expressing this in a non-flat/hierarchical structure but they are complicated and still controversial.

 Direct and Indirect Objects
Both direct objects and indirect objects use the same set of markers within the verb.  The object marker comes immediately in front of the verb stem.
Notice how both of these examples have both direct and indirect objects?  Several of the exercises for this lesson work with the verbs "kuambia" and "kupa" so that you become used to preferentially putting the indirect object within the verb.
Note: Object markers are usually called "infixes" because they usually appear after the subject marker and tense marker, and before the verb stem.  In some verb forms, particularly the command, however, no subject or tense marker is present, so the conjugated verb can actually begin with the object marker.

 Can Object and Direct Graphics Co-exist?
Object graphics and direct graphics are (currently) two completely separate graphics systems and you must select the system and a graphics window appropriate to that system to display graphics.
Moreover, unless you are using a 24-bit color display, it is even difficult to combine direct and object graphics programs (or windows) in the same IDL session due to the completely different ways in which they use and load color tables in this color-limited environment.
Object graphics is clearly the choice if interactive 3D graphical display is of utmost importance.

The direct object, "a song," of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive one.
