Focus on new window


#1

Hi
Still very new to Clarion.
In our application on a specific window, when you try to close the window a procedure performs a check and if relevant opens another window which is basically a question with yes and no buttons.
When the question window opens it does not have focus, i.e. I can’t use the arrow keys to move between the buttons, I have to use the mouse. My users prefer to use the keyboard whenever possible.
How do i put the focus on the newly opened window?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

How are you launching the new window, and where - which embed?

Maybe you could use a simple MESSAGE() instead?

Hi

I’m calling it from another window in the TakeCloseEvent Embed.

If you’re not using START(procedure), it should be OK?
