Close a window

Post by Till Bandi » Thu Feb 16, 2017 9:21 am

I can launch a document from liveCode – is there also a way to close the document respectively the window I opened with the launch document command?
(launch document „xyxy.pdf“). something like <<close window "xyxy.pdf">>?

I’d be happy for any hint, thanks

Hi Till,

I'm afraid ths cannot be done with the build-in means of Livecode.
Maybe you could use an AppleScript on the Mac and a VB-Script on Windows for this task.


Best

All.

This is just about the same question in two threads on the same morning. Check out both, because the answer will likely be the same.

That's what I feared – i'll try.

Thanks!
