.WINDOW name, height, width



The name of the window (a maximum of 15 characters).


The height of the window in rows.


The width of the window in columns.


The .WINDOW command defines the name and size of a general window and marks the beginning of the general window definition.

The window defined by .WINDOW is a general or display‑type window that contains only text. You might use this type of window to display such items as messages, errors, or help information.

The window name must be unique within the set of windows in the library.

If you use .PLACEMENT, height and width must be set to values that enable the general window to fit in the application window, unless you first use .DISPLAY_AREA. (You can use .DISPLAY_AREA to define a display area that fits in the application window, even if the general window you are defining doesn’t. See .DISPLAY_AREA.) The .PLACEMENT command causes Script to logically place the general window, which in turn causes Script to determine whether the window will fit in the application window. (See .PLACEMENT.)
