Window Object

Office 2007
Represents a window. Many document characteristics, such as scroll bars and rulers, are actually properties of the window.

Remarks

The Window object is a member of the Windows collection. The Windows collection for the Application object contains all the windows in the application, whereas the Windows collection for the Document object contains only the windows that display the specified document.

Use Windows(Index), where Index is the window name or the index number, to return a single Window object. The following example maximizes the Document1 window.

Visual Basic for Applications
Windows("Document1").WindowState = wdWindowStateMaximize

The index number is the number to the left of the window name on the Window menu. The following example displays the caption of the first window in the Windows collection.

Visual Basic for Applications
MsgBox Windows(1).Caption

Use the Add method or the NewWindow method to add a new window to the Windows collection. Each of the following statements creates a new window for the document in the active window.

Visual Basic for Applications
ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.NewWindow
NewWindow
Windows.Add

A colon (:) and a number appear in the window caption when more than one window is open for a document.

When you switch the view to print preview, a new window is created. This window is removed from the Windows collection when you close print preview.
