Windows2 Object (Project)

Represents a collection of windows in the application or project.

Note Note

We recommend that you use the Windows2 collection instead of the Windows collection for all new development.

The Windows2 collection for the Application object contains all the windows in the application, whereas the Windows2 collection for the Project object contains only the windows in the specified project.

Development with the .NET Framework 4, or with external components or applications that automate Project, must use the Windows2 object, not the Windows object. A Primary Interop Assembly (PIA) is required to interact correctly with the COM interface of Project if those components are to be signed. Microsoft Visual Studio generates an interop assembly based on the type library if no PIA is present, but the components then cannot be signed with a digital certificate. The PIA is installed with Project.

Using the Windows2 collection

Use the Windows2 property to return a Windows2 collection.

The following example cascades all the windows that are currently displayed in Project.

With Application.Windows2  
    For I = 1 To .Count  
        .Item(I).Activate  
        .Item(I).Top = (I - 1) * 15  
        .Item(I).Left = (I - 1) * 15  
    Next I  
End With

Use the WindowNewWindow method to create a new window and add it to the Windows2 collection.

The following example creates a new window for the active project.

Application.WindowNewWindow

Using the Windows2 object

Use Windows2(Index), where Index is the window index number or window caption, to return a single Window object.

The following example maximizes the first window in the window list.

Application.Windows2(1).WindowState = pjMaximized

The window caption is the text shown in the title bar at the top of the window when the window is not maximized. The caption is also shown in the list of open files on the bottom of the Windows menu. Use the Caption property to set or return the window caption. Changing the window caption does not change the name of the project.

The following example hides the window that contains the caption "Project1".

If Application.Windows2(1).Caption = "Project1" Then  
    Application.Windows2(1).Visible = False  
End If
