object.ShowHotspots = Value

Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether hotspots are visible in the terminal window. When this property is True, hotspots in the terminal window look like buttons.

When this property is False, the way to recognize hotspots is by the cursor—when the cursor is over a hotspot, it changes from an I-bar to an arrow.


The default is True.


The EnableHotspots property determines whether hotspots can be used. If EnableHotspots is True and ShowHotspots is False, hotspots can still be used, even though they are not displayed.

When EnableHotspots is False, hotspots are not displayed and are not available, regardless of the value of ShowHotspots.
