    A InfoConnect .NET API Application object (Workspace), or null.

    This example shows how to get a handle to the application that has focus.
    //This sample gets all of the unnamed terminal controls running in an instance of InfoConnect.
    //Before you run this sample, make sure at least one session is running in an InfoConnect workspace. 
    //If more than one instance of InfoConnect is running, the session must be running in the first instance that was started.
