   MsgBox("Total number of windows in the linked window frame: " & _  
   Frame.LinkedWindows.Count)  

   ' Resize the entire linked window frame.  
   Frame.Width = 500  
   Frame.Height = 600  
   MsgBox("Frame height and width changed. Now changing Command window _  
   height.")  

   ' Resize the height of the Command window.  
   Frame.LinkedWindows.Item(3).Height = 800  
   MsgBox("Now undocking the Command window from the frame.")  

   ' Undock the Command window from the frame.  
   Frame.LinkedWindows.Remove(w3)  
End Sub  

Remarks

The order of the Window arguments determines the order of the linked windows. The two windows to be linked must be visible. If either window is hidden, you get an exception. You can use the Visible property to display windows.
