Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the pointerFocus property to determine how the active window is determined.

Value:

The pointerFocus is true or false.

By default, the pointerFocus property is set to true on Mac OS, OS X, and Windows systems, and to false on Unix systems that ship with Motif.

Comments:

On Unix systems, if the pointerFocus property is false, clicking inside a window makes it the active window. This is the recommended setup.

If the pointerFocus property is true, moving the mouse pointer into a window makes it the active window. Set the pointerFocus to true to work around problems in some Unix window managers (specifically, "olwm" and "fvwm") that prevent active-focus applications such as Revolution from operating correctly.

If the application is started from a Unix command line, this property can be set to true on startup by using the -pointerfocus option.

Cross-platform note: On Mac OS, OS X, and Windows systems, setting the pointerFocusproperty to false changes window activation in minor ways which are not particularly useful, and has no other effect.
