I wrote a simple GTK+ application that displays a popup window.
The problem is that whenever the window is displayed, it immediately gets
("steals") the focus. I would like to prevent that from happening: i.e., the
window should be created and displayed, but it should not be focused, but
instead focus should be retained by whatever window had it before the
creation of the new window.
The only way I know to do that is by calling window.set_accept_focus(False)
before window.show(). The serious flaw with that method is that the
resulting window, while being prevented from stealing the focus, also can
not receive focus at any later time, even by intentional user action.
Any better approaches?
