Post Example: Get Tab By Name

SecureCRT's script API doesn't yet have a native GetTabByName() method.

However, you can get a reference to each existing tab by index, and then iterate over all existing tabs looking for the desired tab by name/caption/title (Caption).

These example scripts show you how; both a python example as well as a vbscript example are provided.

Each example has a function GetTabByName() that takes as an argument a string that is considered case-sensitive ("My Tab Name" is not the same as "my tab name" because of case).'
There is a GetTabByNameCI() that will allow case-insensitive matching.
