[Python] Renam tab in a script

is it possible to rename a tab inside a script ?
I created a script which open many tab (on for each of my switches) by taking an input file containing a list of IP addresses.


cmd = "/SSH2 /L %s /PASSWORD %s /C AES-128-CTR,AES-128 /M SHA1 %s" % (user, passwd, ip_address)

each tab has the ip_addr as name. Is it possible to modify it in the script ?

best regards

Hi cguillaume,

It is possible to rename tabs from within a script. This is done with the Caption property of the Tab object. I've included a brief example below.


# $language = "Python"
# $interface = "1.0"

objTab = crt.GetScriptTab()
objTab.Caption = "This is the new tab name"

For further information on the available Properties/Methods please review the scripting information available in SecureCRT's help file. While in the Contents tab choose Scripting then Script Objects Reference.

Does this help get you the functionality you're looking for?

I have another question linked to this subject.

Is it possible to get the active tab name in a script, in order to be sure that a specific script is executed from the right tab ?

It is, you would use the same Caption property.


objTab = crt.GetScriptTab()
strTabName = objTab.Caption
