Hi Anton, Sorry for being misleading on that, it should also work in View. RIM.r uses it. However it is not guaranteed to pop window to the front, it may just make it flash on the taskbar. (e.g Win98, Win2000 and WinXp behave differently from each other) You might use a pattern similar to this. view-lay: does [view/new lay] ;and then when required to pop up again.. either viewed? lay [lay/changes: 'activate show lay][view-lay] ; --- Not sure if answer you question or not...
