MXP Controlled Chat Window Focus
 
Hi guys,

I have a chat window in CMUD that is shared among different MUDs. Each MUD outputs chat text to the "Comm" window via MXP. The issue I'm having is that when I am in a different MUD tab, and I get chat output in the Comm window, it switches focus over to that tab, often cutting me off in the middle of typing something.

Is there a workaround for this so that it doesn't change focus when you receive new chat input?

Thanks!

Gicker

Can you show us the commands you are using to send text over to the shared window?

You probably need to disable the "Automatically bring to front window with activity" option in the window preferences.

Thanks for the responses guys.

The 'automatically bring to front window with activity' option is unchecked.

It's using MXP built into the MUD code using the DEST tag.

Eg.

Code:

send_to_char(ch, "<DEST Comm>");
send_to_char(ch, "Some chat text.");
send_to_char(ch, "</DEST>");
