• skip - The skip flag state (true if it is to be skipped).


Set the window to be skipped by keyboard focus.

This sets the window to be skipped by normal keyboard input. This means a window manager will be asked not to focus this window as well as omit it from things like the taskbar, pager, "alt-tab" list etc. etc.

Call this and enable it on a window BEFORE you show it for the first time, otherwise it may have no effect.

Use this for windows that have only output information or might only be interacted with by the mouse or touchscreen, never for typing. This may have side-effects like making the window non-accessible in some cases unless the window is specially handled. Use this with care.
