If you have multiple labels(formats) open, how can you select which label you are working with?

You can select the appropriate tab at the top of the design window to specify which document you're working with.

I'm talking about through activex.  I have 2 labels open and need to switch between the two.  Is the only way to select which format to use by calling  btapps.formats.open(label)?

If both labels are open, you'd need to use the GetFormat and Activate commands:

 

btFormat = btApp.Formats.GetFormat("Format1.btw") 

 

btFormat.Activate()

 

Basically using GetFormat lets you select which format to use, and Activate sets focus to it.
