What is the MaxScript name of the "isolate window / button" thing ?

Hello,

I have a dual screen computer, and sometimes I have to move to a single screen. I have for this a useful script called "reset_3ds_max_windows_v1.3_0" but the only 'window' that is not included in this script is the Isolate button.

So I was thinking to add this function in the script but sadly is I don't know how to find the name of the Isolate button / window thing.

I never scripted in MaxScript but I have some programming experience and I understand the script, I only need that instance name of the isolate window.
I thought with that Macro function in MaxScript while moving the isolate button I could see something but I don't, I only see "macros.run "Tools" "Isolate_Selection" so that the function that hides everything I guess.

Thanks for your help.

there is a nice script to find all windows in 3ds max. Its called WindowShopper:

but to change isolate window position try just:

setiniSetting (getDir #plugcfg + "\\isolateSel.ini" ) "IsolatedDialogPosition" "Position" "100 100"

Isolate_Selection used to be macroscript with own settings.

Cheers,
