How do you change the title of the Main Window.  ie. instead of it saying "FileMaker Pro", I want to put in my own custom name.

I think FileMaker do not provide a function to change the Main Window's name, instead we must use some scriptlet/ small program to change the Main Window's name.

Hi Eyeandy,

please provide a little more info.... What do you mean saying "main window" as the window of a Filemaker database carries the file's name.....

Thanks,
Rogier.

Here's an example of a C++ program that would change the titlebar text for you (if you're running filemaker on a windows box)

#include <windows.h>

int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hThisInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpszArgument, int nShowStyle)
{
    HWND hFound = FindWindow(NULL, "FileMaker Pro");
    SetWindowText(hFound, "My cool database...");

    return 0;
}
