Syntax

Set 'About...' method [name/]name

Description

This command changes the "About..." option by calling the specified method which you should set to open a different About window. Omnis executes the specified method when this option is selected in exactly the same way as if it had been selected from a menu, for example, standard windows are closed. If you use Set 'About...' method in a reversible block, the command is reversed when the method terminates.

There are no restrictions on what you can do in the Set 'About...' method, that is, the method that is called. Extra care is needed to ensure that the method does not alter any variables, lists or the status of the flag.

Example

; Open the window wMyAbout instead of the standard Omnis about box
Set 'About...' method cMyCodeClass/AboutBox
; method AboutLibrary in code class cMyCodeClass
Open window instance wMyAbout
