This font can be used:
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppUser code (UMC)

Window alias

The same window (child or sibling window) can be opened several times. To differentiate and identify the opened windows, an alias is assigned to each window.
To define an alias, use OpenSister or OpenChild. This alias is used to identify the windows in the functions accepting a window name in parameter (CurrentTitle, NextTitle, ReturnToCapture, etc.) or to handle a control of a specific window.
To find out the alias of a window, use CurrentWin, PreviousWin or the ..Alias property.
If no alias is specified when the window is opened, an alias is automatically assigned to the window by WINDEV.

Name of a tab pane

Name of a connection

A connection can be created by a Connection variable. The name of the connection corresponds to the name of the variable.
If a connection with the same name already exists (in the analysis or described beforehand), the name of the connection is defined by the HFSQL engine that adds a suffix (a number) to the name of the variable.
In this case, ..Name is used to find out the name of the connection defined by the HFSQL engine.
