|window_name||The window title.|

ctrx_activate_window is a function that makes a window active by settings an input focus to it.
The window_name argument indicates the name of the window that ctrx_activate_window tries to set in focus, as it appears in the window's top header frame.
The window must exist before calling ctrx_activate_window, and it must be visible—that is, it is not possible to activate a window that is minimized.
window_name can be parameterized.
This example shows the use of ctrx_activate_window on a Desktop session with a number of applications open.
//bring focus to Notepad ctrx_activate_window("Untitled - Notepad", CTRX_LAST); //make Calculator active ctrx_activate_window("Calculator", CTRX_LAST);
