NAME

getfrm - returns the current frameID number  

SYNOPSIS

getfrm  

DESCRIPTION

getfrm returns the current frameID number. The frameID number is a number assigned to the frame by FMLI and displayed flush left in the frame's title bar. If a frame is closed its frameID number may be reused when a new frame is opened. getfrm takes no arguments.  

EXAMPLES

Example 1: A sample of the getfrm command.

If a menu whose frameID is 3 defines an item to have this action descriptor:

action=open text stdtext `getfrm`

the text frame defined in the definition file stdtext would be passed the argument 3 when it is opened.  

NOTES

It is not a good idea to use getfrm in a backquoted expression coded on a line by itself. Stand-alone backquoted expressions are evaluated before any descriptors are parsed, thus the frame is not yet fully current, and may not have been assigned a frameID number.
