Explicitly set input focus to the window.

Header File

Defined in SDL_video.h


int SDL_SetWindowInputFocus(SDL_Window * window);

Function Parameters

SDL_Window * window the window that should get the input focus.

Return Value

(int) Returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


You almost certainly want SDL_RaiseWindow() instead of this function. Use this with caution, as you might give focus to a window that is completely obscured by other windows.


This function is available since SDL 2.0.5.
