The tdOne () function does not work.

The application is launched several times but does not prevent it from 
starting.
Anyone save how to solve this fault ?.

Stay tuned,
Ribo Salamanca

Hi Ribo,

I believe the function you are referring to is tdOneInst(cTitle). 
Although I don't currently use it I just reinstated it back into my 
application and, for me, it works as documented.  Keep in mind cTitle as 
passed has to be an exact match with the title in the application main 
window.  In the documentation Clayton stated that he uses it in his 
tdDemo so I also tried running td90Demo.exe twice and only had one 
instance running as expected.

Although I used to use Clayton's tdOneInst() function, in 2016 I 
switched to using a function created by Michael McVicker called 
InstCnt() as in "Instance Counter" that uses API calls to determine how 
many instances of the current application.exe are running and like 
tdOneInst() can place focus on the instance already running.  It does 
not use the window title.

I don't specifically remember where I acquired it from but believe it is 
in the public domain so I am attaching the zip file that should contain 
everything one needs to incorporate it.

Regards... Jonathan

tdOne..() works fine if the title of the running instance is not changed, from what is written in tdOne..(<title>).

I use it in my apps.
