I have a tool with a window. I have been looking at this documentation. Is there any way to focus the Renoise window from the tool window?


Doc info:

-------- Functions

-- Expand the window over the entire screen, without hiding menu bars, 
-- docks and so on.

-- Minimize the window to the dock or taskbar, depending on the OS.

-- "un-maximize" or "un-minimize" the window, or just bring it to front.

-- Select/enable one of the global view presets, to memorize/restore
-- the user interface 'layout'.


Something like that renoise.app().window:focus() ??? (focus the window of renoise)
What I intend to build is the idea and turn between the window of renoise and the window of the tool, without having to close the tool, through keyboard commands.
The round-and-turn between windows using keyboard commands makes it easier to use a tool. The goal is to not have to close the tool to return to the Renoise window and that the tool window remains in the foreground.
Is there any way?
