Description

Returns the Window Reference for a window specified by the Index parameter.
The Window Reference is a unique ID.
The window reference is only valid until the window is closed.

On normal FileMaker on desktop you can use Get(WindowName), but on FileMaker Server the name includes the server name, so you need to use: Get(WindowName) & " (" & Get(HostName) & ")"
If 0 is returned, no window was found.

Examples

Get the Window Reference of the current window

MBS( "WebView.FindWindowByTitle" ; Get(WindowName) )

Find window reference on FileMaker Server where FileMaker includes server name in window name:

MBS( "WebView.FindWindowByTitle"; Get(WindowName) & " (" & Get(HostName) & ")")
