Use to nest statements that reference the same window or record data type object. An object reference that starts with a dot ( . ) is understood to refer to the window argument.
with window .statement
|statement||A single statement or a series of statements.|
Use with to make your code easier to read.
Modifications of a record object within a with block do not persist outside the block, because the with statement works with a copy of the record object, rather than with the original record object.
with statements can be nested; however, you can only refer to the innermost window. For example, the following fragment:
with abc with .def .ghi
is equivalent to:
The Click and DragMouse methods operate on the same child window:
with MainWin("Draw Prog*").ChildWin("c:\pix\pic2.bmp") .Click (1, 530, 272) .DragMouse (1, 529, 268, 509, 265)
abc-window is a common parent of def-window and jkl-window:
with abc-window .def-window.ghi-method .jkl-window.mno-method
