Where are you checking the value from? Is it another extension?

I suggest assigning that value to a hidden textbox (or any other suitable UI 
control) somewhere in the interface. That should be able to give you a 
per-windows value, but maybe that's just crazy.

There should be better ways of doing that, though.
