rinceWind has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I read with interest the thread "Always on top" with Win32 and Tk. However, what I want to do is different - I don't want a top level window on top all of the time. From a callback, I want to make a pre-existing window to pop up and bring itself to the front.

I think the answer lies in the toplevel window taking focus, but I can't find this in the documentation.

The platform is X-window on Solaris.

Any clues? Thanks in advance.
