gdk_screen_get_active_window (
  GdkScreen* screen

Description [src]

Returns the screen’s currently active window.

On X11, this is done by inspecting the _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW property on the root window, as described in the Extended Window Manager Hints. If there is no currently currently active window, or the window manager does not support the _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW hint, this function returns NULL.

On other platforms, this function may return NULL, depending on whether it is implementable on that platform.

The returned window should be unrefed using g_object_unref() when no longer needed.
