Hi Marsel,

The following code allows you to use buttons
on one window to  bring another window to the top:

from Tkinter import *


for wid1 in (1,2,3):
    windows[wid1].title("Window "+str(wid1))
    windows[wid1].minsize(width=280, height=20)
    for wid2 in (1,2,3):

        if wid1==wid2: continue
        Button(fr, text=str(wid2),
               command=lambda w=windows[wid2]: w.focus_set()).pack(side=LEFT)

Is that what you wanted?

You also say:

Is this a different question? I thought you were talking about
connecting windows?
