WindowNames

Category: Design

Syntax: WindowNames {( filename )}


Parameters: Optional filename as text.

Data type returned: Text

Description:

Returns a carriage returndelimited list of open window names.

Note that WindowNames returns window names from all open FileMaker files or just the file specified by the optional parameter. Window names do not need to be unique. The order of the list is determined by the stacking order of the windows, with the topmost window (the active window) listed first. Hidden windows are listed, but not any window that appears in the window list surrounded by parentheses. This indicates a file that is open but that doesn have any windows, hidden or visible. Visible windows are listed first, then minimized windows, then hidden windows.
