AmigaOS 4.0 - About OS4 - Commands

Purpose: To bring a window to the front of the screen.
Path: SYS:Utilities/Commodities/ClickToFront
CLICKTOFRONT enables you to bring a window to the front of the screen by double-clicking on it. You do not need to select the window's depth gadget.

The CX_PRIORITY=<priority> argument sets the priority of CLICKTOFRONT in relation to all of the other Commodity Exchange programs. (This is the same as entering a CX_PRIORITY=<priority> Tool Type in the icon's Information window.) All of the Commodity Exchange programs are set to a default priority of 0. If you specify a <priority> higher than 0, CLICKTOFRONT will take priority over any other Commodity Exchange program.

QUALIFIER enables you to specify a qualifier key that must be pressed while double-clicking in the window you want to bring to the front of the screen. The acceptable key arguments are:

  Lalt Left Alt
  Left_Alt Left Alt
  Ralt Right Alt
  Right_Alt Right Alt
  Ctrl Ctrl
  Control Ctrl
  None no key

To start CLICKTOFRONT, double-click on its icon. It does not open a window.

Remember, you can also copy CLICKTOFRONT to the WBStartup drawer so that it automatically starts each time you boot.

To exit CLICKTOFRONT when it has been started from the icon simply double click on the icon again. To exit CLICKTOFRONT when it has been started from the Shell, press Ctrl+C, or use the BREAK command.
