Creating a list of visible windows in FM7

General support questions.
PostPosted: Sat Aug 06, 2005 4:41 pm
Hi, I'm trying to maintain a list of open windows that is included in most windows so that a user can have multiple windows open and then click on any of the items in the list to bring the window with that title to the front. I'd really like to do this without the Windows menu and without a script (if possible) so that clicking the close box will update the list.

I can do this pretty easily using a portal where each record references a value in WindowNames, but "all" open windows are included. FM apparently considers a window open even if it's hidden. I really only want visible windows listed because the hidden ones will be confusing to users.

Maybe this is impossible because the Get(WindowVisible) function only works with the currently active window.

I'm curious if anyone has any other ideas how this might be accomplished.
