Remarks
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppUser code (UMC)

Running the process of a control or procedure belonging to a window (or to a page) other than the current window (or page)

You have the ability to run the process of a control or procedure belonging to a window (or to a page) other than the current window (or page). To do so, the control name or the procedure name must be prefixed with the name of the window (or page).
For example:
// Run the process of the Validate button found in MySibling (opened window or page)
Execute("MySibling.Validate..CLI")
 
// Run the PROC1 procedure of MySibling (opened window or page)
Execute("MySibling.PROC1")
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppUser code (UMC)

String passed in parameter to Execute

The string passed in parameter to Execute cannot be a built string or a variable. You must use the string that contains the name of control, window or page as well as the process to run.
// Correct code
Execute("Edit2..Exit")
 
// Incorrect code
i is int = 5
Execute("Edit" + i + "..Exit")
WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppUser code (UMC)

The arrays

The arrays are not recognized by Execute.
For example:
var_arr is array of 10 strings
// Call the MYPROC procedure with an array passed in parameter
MYPROC(var_arr)
// The following statement triggers an error
Execute("MYPROC..PRO", var_arr)
WINDEVUser code (UMC)

Opening process of window/page

Execute must not be called to run the opening process of a window/page because the global variables may be re-initialized. Procedures must be used in this case.
WINDEVUser code (UMC)

Calling a global component procedure

Execute is used to call a global component procedure. To do so, use the following syntax:
Execute(<Component name>.<Name of set of procedures>.<Procedure name>)
Example:
Execute("MyComponent.Set_WDExample.MyProcedure")
In a thread started by a component, Execute cannot be used to call a local procedure of a window of the host project.
You must use a global procedure of the host project to call the local procedure of the window.
