setWindowTitle {utils}R Documentation

Set or get the Window Title

Description

Set the title of the R window which will appear in the task bar.

Usage

setWindowTitle(suffix, title = paste(getIdentification(), suffix))
getWindowTitle()
getIdentification()

Arguments

suffix a character string to form part of the title
title a character string forming the complete new title

Details

setWindowTitle appends suffix to the normal window identification (RGui, R Console or Rterm). Use suffix = "" to reset the title.

getWindowTitle gets the current title.

This sets the title of the frame in MDI mode, the title of the console for RGui --sdi, and the title of the window from which it was launched for Rterm. It has no effect in embedded uses of R.

getIdentification returns the normal window identification.

Value

All three functions return a length 1 character vector.
setWindowTitle returns the previous window title (invisibly).
getWindowTitle and getIdentification return the current window title and the normal window identification, respectively.

Examples

## show the current working directory in the title, saving the old one
oldtitle <- setWindowTitle(getwd())
Sys.sleep(0.5)
## reset the title
setWindowTitle("")
Sys.sleep(0.5)
## restore the original title
setWindowTitle(title = oldtitle)
