Hey, Cody,

Thank you.
I tried, but the result is still not right.
Here is my code:

using Gdk;
			string [] dummy = new string [0];
			Gdk.Global.InitCheck (ref dummy);
			var win = Window.ForeignNew (0x6a00003); //0x6a00003 is the xid of
a gcalctool window, got from xwininfo.
			win.Move (40, 40);	//this line works
			win.Raise(); 	//this line has no effect
			win.Focus(0u);	//this line has no effect
