I notice that when I use a status box or message box that the focus is taken away from the program I am using.

Hi everyone,

I can not understand what you are saying. Please make a detailed explanation.

Thank you for your time.

My TeraTerm macros use statusbox and messagebox commands. When I run my macro and then change program focus to some other application while the macro runs the focus will be taken from the application I am using back to the teraterm macro when a statusbox is updated with new data or a messagebox displays. I would like the focus to not be returned to teraterm until I click on it.

Hi scbreyman,

Thank you for your response. I understand what you say at last.
As a conclusion of your question, the behavior is the Tera Term specification
not a bug. The messagebox, inputbox and listbox macro command are shown on the
top of most windows after Tera Term 4.78 because some users want to always 
bringup these box-style macro command.

2013.05.31 (Ver 4.78)
◾The messagebox, inputbox and listbox commands bring the macro dialog to the top.
If you want your request, please propose new macro interface and method to us.
We will discuss your request to be able to supporting.
