How to write to Address Bar

Is it possible to print a string to the Address bar, the way you can to the Status bar?

Hi ShawnVW.

Can you clarify what you mean by the address bar?

What problem are you trying to solve?

Thanks

JJH

Currently I'm using the Status Bar as a kind of debugging tool by displaying things like the record currently being processed. I'd like to have more than one place to display such information.

I know that SecureCRT has an "AddressBar" item. I assume this refers to the bar above the Menu Bar, which currently says "OurRemoteProgram - SecureCRT".

Hi Shawn - The bar below the menu items can be written to with:

Code:
crt.Window.Caption =
followed by any valid string.

The area of the Window that usually reads "not connected - SecureCRT" when SecureCRT is first launched is called the "title bar".

It can be changed by using the crt.Window.Caption property as mentioned.

In addition, each tab's label/caption can be changed by using its corresponding Tab object's Caption property as well.

For example, this code will prepend an index to each tab label in your SecureCRT window:
Code:
For i = 1 to crt.GetTabCount
    strPrefix = "[" & i & "] "
    Set objTab = crt.GetTab(i)
    If Left(objTab.Caption, Len(strPrefix)) <> strPrefix Then
        objTab.Caption = strPrefix & objTab.Caption
    End If
Next
Note also, however, that setting a tab's caption also affects the SecureCRT Title bar (which reflects the caption of the active tab).

Does this information help to answer your questions?

Current versions of SecureCRT support opening multiple connections in tabs within the same SecureCRT window.

To open a new connection in a tab, simply enable the Open in a tab option on the Quick Connect/Connect dialog or right-click in the Session Manager and choose Open Sessions in a Tab/Tile.

If you want to open a new connection into a new tab from within a script, you simply use the crt.Session.ConnectInTab() method. You can find out more about this method by consulting the SecureCRT help (main "Help" pull-down menu in SecureCRT, then "Help Topics") and also by reading the SecureCRT Scripting Guide.
