Activation Event


For BBj-specific information, see Activation Event - BBj.

Description

The user switched between either the applications or the windows within an application.

For application activation and deactivation, the context is irrelevant. For window activation and deactivation, examining the x field indicates if the window is minimized and indicates when a top level window is activated or deactivated.

Previously, when users switched between applications via keyboard entries such as the [Alt]+[Tab] combination, Visual PRO/5 did not always send a focus change event to the application's top level window because the change was passed to the frame window that manages the top level window.
