jlink activate window after open file

Hey J-link peeps!

the question of the day is how to activate the window of a newly open
drawing. this does not seem to work:
window.Activate();
window.Repaint();
I was wonderin if I did a
curSession.OpenFile(file name);
could i do a
window.Activate(file name);

thanks for the help!

regards,

Alfonso

RE: jlink activate window after open file

Get current window give you the activated window. So not the Window you want to activate.


When u make openFile u get a window discriptor. Thats the one u need.



JLink API:
Window OpenFile (ModelDescriptorMdlDescr)
Retrieves the specified model and displays it in a window.

This method is equivalent to calling BaseSession.RetrieveModel(ModelDescriptor) , BaseSession.CreateModelWindow(Model) , and Model.Display() .
