i can’t get ShowWindow to bring vvvv back into focus with DoBringToTop.
instead of switching the focus back, the vvvv icon starts blinking in the windows taskbar.
see attached patch for a demonstration.
ultimately i want to show a chrome browser in kiosk mode and have the possibility to close it again with a mouse click on a small, borderless dx9 renderer that is shown after some seconds of inactivity.
no keyboard available as it runs on a touch screen.
everything seems to work alright, except for getting the focus back to vvvv.
happy to hear about alternative solutions, maybe its possible to show chrome kiosklike while leaving some pixels on the bottom for the close button?
sadly, html texture is not suitable for various reasons.
and…this is kind of urgent.
edit: changed to bug in hope to get some attention…
so i’ve been testing this on another system.
at first it behaved as described, but then it kind of just worked.
i was able to break it again by just switching programs, and now it’s working perfectly solid.
now i feel betrayed by whatever is causing this.
i tried various update periods for the windows list but this doesn’t seem to make a difference.
also, i recall it working on the production system for a while (mac mini with bootcamped win7)
