Required information!
OS version: Win7 SP1  x64
ConEmu version: 140114a
Far version (if you are using Far Manager): no

I write a .bat to open multiple console applications in many tabs in one click. How
can I switch between opened tabs programmatically (e.g. select tab by title, make it
active tab to execute some command)?

For example:
conEmuC -Guimacro Shell("new_console:t:1")
conEmuC -Guimacro Shell("new_console:t:2")
// select 1 tab make it active here?
// select 2 tab make it active here?

Thank you in advance.

It is more canonical to use NewConsole for creating tabs from batches. E.g.:

    cmd -new_console:t:1

So, you actually do not need to switch tabs from batches, because you may choose what
tab need to be active.

You can switch tab using GuiMacro Tab function. But only by index. Obviously tab names
can't be unique.
