I have a main
NSWindow in my application with a button. When the button is pressed it does something like the following:
NSWindow *newWindow = [NSWindow initWithContentRect:[screen frame] styleMask:NSBorderlessWindowMask backing:NSBackingStoreBuffered defer:NO]; [newWindow makeKeyAndOrderFront:self]; [self.previousWindow orderOut:self];
This works fine most of the time, but if I have a second window open (called the "other" window) and on another screen before I press the button, the following happens:
- My new window is created, made key, and ordered front.
- The previous window is ordered out.
- The "other" window is made key.
Looking at the stack trace I can see that the "other" window is being made key as the result of some notification being sent. This is not in my app so must be a Cocoa thing. Given that I am explicitly saying which window should be the key window, why is Cocoa ignoring that and changing it to something else? Is there a better way to do what I want?
This doesn't occur if all the windows are on the same screen.
