Post subject:  PB5.7x qt: More Window incompatibilities (minimize, Focus)

Some further incompatibilities of the subsystem qt compared to Gtk2, Gtk3 and Windows.

On my main system (Xubuntu 18.04, x64), the command GetActiveWindow() will always return -1, even if I use SetActiveWindow(#Window).

If I use SetActiveWindow(#Window) before, minimizing the window with SetWindowState(#Window, #PB_Window_Minimize) under Qt doesn't work!
An example...

; Object constants
#Win_Main  = 10

Global.i gEvent, gQuit

Procedure Create_WinMain()
   If OpenWindow(#Win_Main, 300, 200, 600, 200, "Window minimize & 'GetActiveWindow()' incompatibility on qt ", #PB_Window_SystemMenu | #PB_Window_ScreenCentered | #PB_Window_SizeGadget | #PB_Window_MinimizeGadget)


Debug GetActiveWindow()
;shows -1 on qt but 10 on gtk2, gtk3, Windows

SetActiveWindow(#Win_Main);             Try it under qt with this line commented out!

Debug GetActiveWindow()
;shows again -1 on qt but a correct 10 on gtk2, gtk3, Windows

;If 'SetActiveWindow(#Win_Main)' not commented out, the following command does not iconify the window under qt. Gtk2, gtk3, Windows is okay.
SetWindowState(#Win_Main, #PB_Window_Minimize)

   gEvent= WaitWindowEvent()
   Select gEvent
      Case #PB_Event_CloseWindow
         gQuit= #True
Until gQuit
