Window class

The Window class defines these static properties and functions. Window instances created with new Window() do not have these properties and functions defined.


Window class properties

frameworkName String Deprecated. Use ScriptUI.frameworkName instead.
version String Deprecated. Use ScriptUI.version instead.

Window class functions

Access these function through the class. For example:

Window.alert("Notification to user");

alert()

Window.alert(message[, title, errorIcon]);

Displays a platform-standard dialog containing a short message and an OK button.

message The string for the displayed message.
title Optional. A string to appear as the title of the dialog, if the platform supports a title. Mac OS does not support titles for alert dialogs. The default title string is "Script Alert."
errorIcon Optional. When true, the platform-standard alert icon is replaced by the platform-standard error icon in the dialog. Default is false.

Returns undefined

confirm()

Window.confirm(message[,noAsDflt ,title ]);

Displays a platform-standard dialog containing a short message and two buttons labeled Yes and No.

message The string for the displayed message.
noAsDflt Optional. When true, the No button is the default choice, selected when the user types ENTER. Default is false, meaning that Yes is the default choice.
title Optional. A string to appear as the title of the dialog, if the platform supports a title. Mac OS does not support titles for confirmation dialogs. The default title string is "Script Alert."

Returns true if the user clicked Yes, false if the user clicked No.

find()

Window.find(resourceName) Window.find(type, title)

Use this method to find an existing window. This includes windows already created by a script, and windows created by the application (if the application supports this case).

resourceName The name of a predefined resource available to JavaScript in the current application.
type Optional. The window type (see Window object constructor) used if there is more than one window with the same title. Can be null or the empty string.
title The window title.

Note

Not supported in all ScriptUI implementations.

Returns a Window object found or generated from the resource, or null if no such window or resource exists.

prompt()

Window.prompt(message, preset[, title ]);

Displays a modal dialog that returns the user’s text input.

message The string for the displayed message.
preset The initial value to be displayed in the text edit field.
title Optional. A string to appear as the title of the dialog. In Windows, this appears in the window’s frame; in Mac OS it appears above the message. The default title string is "Script Prompt".

Returns the value of the text edit field if the user clicked OK, null if the user clicked Cancel.
