[platform-help-dev] bringing browser window to the front for standalone Java application?



Foresightful Help Developers:

We're using Standalone Eclipse 2.1.1 Help on Windows.  If the help window
is already open, a help request displays in the window but the window
doesn't come to the front, so the help request appears to have done
nothing.

Is there a way to ensure that a display request brings the help window to
the front?

I looked at org.eclipse.help.internal.standalone.StandaloneHelp,
org.eclipse.help.internal.standalone.EclipseController, and
org.eclipse.help.internal.webapp.servlet.ControllerServlet.processRequest()
but didn't see anything.

Given that it's a browser window, I assume there's no way to get a Java
reference to the window and use AWT calls to bring it to the front.

The help is displaying in IE 6.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
