Window focus when launched from the command line

Post by jsh » Fri Aug 31, 2007 4:25 pm

Not sure if this is a DiffMerge issue....Most of the time I want to run DiffMerge from a command line (I use a Mac, so I'm launching /Applications/ via an alias). However, when I do this DiffMerge does not get window focus, so I have to either click the window or Cmd-tab to it. Is there a way around this? Thanks.

Are you using the 'open' command with that? If not, try that. It should keep focus on what you launched when you use that commend.

You could also try an AppleScript to bring it to the front.

For example:
  • /Applications/DiffMerge/Contents/MacOS/ &
    tell application "DiffMerge"
    end tell
