WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppAndroidAndroid Widget iPhone/iPadIOS WidgetMac CatalystUser 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 windows with functions that take a window name as a parameter (CurrentTitle, NextTitle, SetFocusAndReturnToUserInput, etc.) or to handle a control in a given window.
To get 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.

Tab pane name

Connection name

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 Name property returns the name of the connection defined by the HFSQL engine.
