Window Caption

Author: (Iain Sharp)

The documentation says that window caption is dynamic.

Does this mean you can switch it from within proc, and if so, how?


  1. You can use $formtitle and $appltitle for this.
    Exact syntax is in the Help.

  2. I'm using those.
    I want to make the windows bar at the top of the form vanish. If I 'dock' this form with another one using $windowsproperties I wanted to 'untick' the 'caption' tick box on the windowproperties dialog. According to the docs this is dynamic.

  3. Hi,

    You are right that the caption (title) property is dynamic.

    But if you look at $applproperties and $windowproperties you see that this topic is only valid in $applproperties.

    So I suggest that you put in a wish to have (many) more topics available in $windowproperties.

    (btw documented or not, could not get it to work...)

  4. Yeah, Derek D. has logged a bug fix for that.
