Programming with Reflection

image\rwnprg32.gif Caption property



object.Caption = Value

Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) the string that appears in the Reflection title bar. This string is only relevant when the HelpDisplayMode property is set to rcStatusBar (the default value).

This string is also displayed on the taskbar when Reflection is running. If Reflection is running but minimized, the string shown on the taskbar button is defined by IconTitle.

For example, the following command sets the title bar to show the text "Session: " followed by the session type, transport type and connection status. For an unconnected 3270 Terminal using Telnet, the title bar would read "Session: IBM 3270 Terminal - Telnet - No Connection."

Session.Caption = "Session: &s - &t - &c"


The default is "&f - &r - &s".

This string can be up to 220 characters long.

The following spectial characters can be included in this string:

&w "AttachmateWRQ"

&r "Reflection"

&f Settings File Name (or 'Untitled' if a settings file is not open)
