# Window.Caption Property

 Project Developer Reference

Returns or sets the text in the title bar of a project window. Read/write String.

Syntax

expression.Caption

expression   A variable that represents a Window object.

Return Value
String

Remarks

When the active window is maximized, the title bar displays the caption for both the main and active windows, separating the captions with a hyphen. For example, if the caption for the main window is "Microsoft Office Project" and the caption for the active window is "Project1", the title bar displays "Microsoft Office Project - Project1" when the active window is maximized.

If you set the Caption property to Empty, the title bar displays a default caption. The default caption for the main window is "Microsoft Office Project".

In a project with one window, the default caption for the window is the file name of the project. In a project with multiple windows, the default caption for each window is name:n, where name is the file name of the project and n is a unique number for the window. For example, if the second window of the project "Project1" is active, the default title bar displays "Microsoft Office Project - Project1.mpp:2"

Example
The following example prompts the user to change the caption for the active window.

Visual Basic for Applications
```  ```Sub ChangeWindowCaption()
Dim Entry As String    ' Caption entered by user

' Prompt user for a new caption.
Entry = InputBox\$("Enter a new caption for the active window (enter 'reset' to set the caption to its default).")

' If user chooses the Cancel button, exit Sub procedure.
If Entry = Empty Then Exit Sub

' Set or reset the caption.
If Entry = "reset" Then
ActiveWindow.<strong class="bterm">Caption</strong> = Empty
Else
ActiveWindow.<strong class="bterm">Caption</strong> = Entry
End If

````End Sub`
```
