WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppUser code (UMC)

Alias of a window

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 windows with functions that take a window name as a parameter (CurrentTitle, NextTitle, ReturnToCapture, etc.) or to handle a control in a given window.
To know the alias of a window, use the CurrentWin, PreviousWin or Property Alias functions.
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

The Property Name returns the name of the tab pane. For example: Tab[ 2] for the second tab panel.

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, the Property Name allows to know the name of the connection defined by the HFSQL engine.
