How can I create a label for my window that will update as I make changes to the window?



You can create dynamically updating window labels easily by taking advantage of the built-in label macros.

To create the label

  1. First, using the Select Objects  tool, select a Window and click on the Open Object edit button.

  2. Under the Label panel, of the Window Specification dialog, select Specify Label.

  3. Click the Insert button, and under Object Specific, choose the macro you wish to insert.

  4. You can arrange these macros in the label field however you wish in order to create a label that fits your requirements.

    For the purposes of this example, select both Width and then Type Name, so the Specify Label field reads: %width% %type_name%.

  5. Click OK to accept the new label and your window's label will now update with any changes you make to it.
