    CreateApplication() Method
    In This Topic
    Creates an application that represents the instance of InfoConnect that was just started by you, or an InfoConnect instance running at the default IPC channel (if the InfoConnect instance is the first instance started manually).
    Public Overloads Shared Function CreateApplication() As Application
    Dim value As Application
    value = MyReflection.CreateApplication()
    public static Application CreateApplication()

    Return Value

    An Application object.
    This sample gets a handle to an application that represents the first instance of InfoConnect started manually. Then it gets a handle to a demo session and gets some text from a session screen. Before running this sample, make sure the demoSession.rd3x session is running in a workspace
    //This sample gets the Terminal control of a running session.
    //Before you run this sample, make sure the session used in GetControlsByFilePath()
    //is running in an InfoConnect workspace. If more than one instance of InfoConnect is running,
    //the session must be running in the first instance that was started.
