RESTORE WINDOW Command

Restores to memory window definitions and window statuses saved to a window file or memo field.


RESTORE WINDOW WindowNameList | ALL FROM FileName
 | FROM MEMO MemoFieldName

Parameters

WindowNameList

Specifies one or more windows to be restored. Separate the window names with commas.

ALL

Restores all window definitions in the window file or memo field.

FROM FileName

Specifies the window file from which windows are restored. A window file has a .win extension. If the file was given another extension when it was saved, you must include this extension in FileName.

FROM MEMO MemoFieldName

Specifies the memo field from which the windows are restored.

Use SAVE WINDOW to store window definitions in a window file or in a memo field.

Any windows in memory with the same names as those restored are overwritten. A window's status (hidden, active, and so on) when it is saved is preserved when it is restored.

In the following example, a window named wOutput1 is defined and saved to a variable. All windows are cleared and the window named wOutput1 is restored and activated.

CLEAR
DEFINE WINDOW wOutput1 FROM 2,1 TO 13,75 TITLE 'Output' ;
   CLOSE FLOAT GROW ZOOM
SAVE WINDOW wOutput1 TO temp
CLEAR WINDOWS
RESTORE WINDOW wOutput1 FROM temp
ACTIVATE WINDOW wOutput1 
WAIT "The window wOutput1 has been restored" WINDOW
