public method Focus(): void;
public void Focus();

The Focus public method controls which window is active for use of the keyboard. In the examples below the active EditorWindow keyboard is changed to a different EditorWindow keyboard. See Also: focusedWindow. Focus one window by pressing the button on other window

no example available in JavaScript
// EditorWindow.Focus
// A window that change state to the second window when
// the button is pressed.

using UnityEngine; using UnityEditor;

public class FocusExample1 : EditorWindow { public static FocusExample1 Instance = null;

[MenuItem("Example/Focus Example1")] static void Init() { GetWindow<FocusExample1>("Focus1"); }

public FocusExample1() { Instance = this; }

void OnGUI() { if (GUILayout.Button("Focus Window2")) { FocusExample2.Instance.Focus(); } } }
                        // Simple Editor Window that when clicked focuses another window.
// Usage: Open both windows (Window 1 and Window 2) and just press the button
// to see how the focus changes

class Window2 extends EditorWindow {

static var instance;

@MenuItem("Example/Show Focus Usage/Window2") static function Init() { var window = EditorWindow.GetWindow(Window2); }
