    Default Change Active Window

    I have 2 windows open. I want to programmiticaly make one window be on top and have focus from the other window. I'm calling
    Qt Code:
    1. window->setWindowState(Qt::WindowActive);
    2. window->setFocus();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    but the window I'm calling it from stays in focus. Am I doing something wrong? They are both a QMainWindow
