View Full Version : [SOLVED] how to set focus on an application?

July 1st, 2010, 09:27 PM

I want to set focus on an application without using keyboard or mouse. May be through terminal or using a program/script. The application is running behind another application.

Is it possible to do this?

I'm afraid I don't really see the point in this, however it is probably possible, depending on how much work you are willing to put into it.

You might have to ask in the programming forum, since I doubt there is a terminal command for this.

Well, what I'm trying to do is to get the hidden application to appear on top of an application which is in full screen mode.

I've looked everywhere but have not been able to find a solution. So this is what I thought I would try.

Ill post this in the programming forum.
