Re: Window focus vs. raising

I am fairly new to Gnome. One feature that I have been unable to find is

another. In the documentation all I find talks about 'selecting' a
window which then implies both giving focus and raising the window.

Is there any way to make a distinction ?
(I have recently asked this question on the general list but got no
reply. Hope to do better here).

This is a Gtk+ related question, I dont know what the general
list is, this question should go to gtk-app-devel-list gnome org.

About your question, I expect its possible even though I cant think
of any use cases for raising a window that doesnt have focus.

Now I would expect gtk_window_present() to do both, raise the
window and set keyboard focus, what apis are you using ?

I would expect gdk_window_raise() to do what you want although
its not really normal to access the widget's window directly, you
should be able to get along with the GtkWindow apis.
