Extra! Macros capturing escape sequences

Extra! Macros capturing escape sequences

Extra! Macros capturing escape sequences

I've run into an issue trying to update the title bar of the Attachmate window on the fly. Although I'm emulating a VT terminal, using the ANSI escape sequence to update the title bar doesn't work. All the other ANSI escape sequences seem to work, except that one. Also, the session.Title method doesn't appear to work either. I am able to update the title bar using Window API calls but to do that I'd have to be able to have the macro capture the escape sequence that the application is trying to send so I'd know what to update the title bar to. I guess what my real question is, has anyone had success updating the title bar either using ANSI escape sequences, or having a macro consume the same ANSI escape sequences to be broken apart within the macro?

btw... I'm using Attachmate Extra! and not Attachmate Reflection.
