in reply to Perl Tk Active Window

Using a timer used to work, but I just tested it, and it dosn't raise the window, it just flashes its icon. You could try $mw->overrideredirect(1); but it will show up on all virtual desktops. As an alternative, Gtk2 has a more flexible override which allows the override on each virtual desktop of your system.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Glib qw/TRUE FALSE/; use Gtk2 '-init'; my $window = Gtk2::Window->new(); #$window->set_decorated(0); #Gtk2::Window::set_decorated($window, 0); #print $window->get_decorated(),"\n"; #$window->stick; #$window->unstick; #Gtk2::Window::set_keep_above($window, 1); $window->set_keep_above(1); $window ->signal_connect( 'destroy' => \&delete_event ); $window->set_border_width(10); $window->set_size_request(300,200); my $button = Gtk2::Button->new_from_stock('gtk-quit'); $window->add( $button); $button->signal_connect( clicked => \&delete_event ); $window->set_position('center'); $window->show_all(); $window->stick; Gtk2->main; ##################################### sub delete_event { Gtk2->main_quit; return FALSE; }
