The WindowObject class provides methods to query, manipulate, and interact with a particular window or one of its child windows.
Access to the WindowObject class requires that the following directive appear in the Rexx program.
Note. Prior to the release of ooRexx 4.0.0, the WindowsObject class was implemented using the original external function API. That API required that the external functions be registered with the interpreter. For the most part this was done transparently to the Rexx programmer. However, with the WindowsObject class there was one scenario where the registration was not done and prior documentation provided a work around.
Starting with ooRexx 4.0.0, that work around is not needed. There no longer is any need for the programmer to register external functions at all. Requiring winSystm.cls is all that is needed from ooRexx 4.0.0 and on. Disregard the previous documentation concerning external functions.
