Manual page for getfrm(1F)
getfrm - returns the current frameID number
getfrm returns the current frameID number.
The frameID number is a number assigned to the frame by
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
getfrm takes no arguments.
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.
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.
