Subject: TK window does not open as active/foreground window when pp --gui is used
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 302b
When creating an executable using pp --gui, when executed a TK window generated by my script is opened, but it is not the active/foreground window, it appears behind other windows open on the screen. If I use pp without the '--gui' option, the window opens as expected as the active, forground window.

Able to reproduce with this code: use Tk; $top = MainWindow->new(); $top->title ("Simple"); $l = $top->Label(text => 'hello', anchor => 'n', relief => 'groove', width => 10, height => 3); $l->pack(); MainLoop(); Compiled with: C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Desktop\devel>pp -o tktest2.exe tktest2.pl C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Desktop\devel>pp --gui -o tktest2ng.exe tktest2.pl When executing tktest2.exe the window appears as the active window When executing tktest2ng.exe the window appears but not active.
