Discussion

The .TITLE command defines a window title name, its renditions, and its border position.

The title is displayed only if both the border and title are on. You can list the renditions, border, and position in any order, but title must always be first. If the title is longer than one word, it must be enclosed in quotation marks.

The window must be as wide as the title for the title to be displayed.

Any repeated options override previous ones.

On Windows, the Windows theme in use determines the location of the title; Toolkit settings have no effect.

Examples

The following example defines a highlighted border in color palette number 3, and then defines the title “My To Do List” in color palette number 3.

Your window will resemble figure 1 (below) on UNIX and OpenVMS and figure 2 (below) on Windows.

.border on, highlight, color(3)
.title " My To Do List ", color(3)
