AW: Test for window open - outside of Omnis.

Hi Andrew,

When opening Omnis we open a file and do not close the file, but only if the file either does not exist, or the file exists and can be opened as ReadWrite. When we close the app we close the file and then delete it. You could write a text  to the file when the window opens, and when the window closes remove the text from the file. If the file has a JSON format a python app should be able to read the file and thus test if the window is open.

Anyone know if its possible using a .bat or .py file to check if a particular Omnis window is open?
