Show {screen elements}


show <screen element> [at <x,y>]


The show command displays screen elements, and makes the visible property of a screen element true, thereby bringing that screen element into view. Possible screen elements are the following: card window cursor menubar message rulers scrollbars sizeBox titlebar toolbar {background | bkgnd} picture {card | cd} picture {horizontal | vertical} scrollbar The show {cd|bg} picture form of the show command has the same effect as setting the showPict property of the card or background to true. <x,y> specifies the distance from the upper-left corner of the card window to the center of any <screen element> except menu bars, rulers, card pictures, and background pictures.


If the menu bar is hidden and the screen is locked, the show menubar command has no effect. See the lock screen and unlock screen commands and lockScreen property for more information. Hide cursor commands may be nested. As with the lock screen and unlock screen commands, an equivalent show cursor command is required for each hide cursor command that has been issued. Showing the sizeBox has no effect in Microsoft Windows.
