Yeah, that'd be pretty darn cool alright. Happily, part of the job has
already been done; a patch has been written that allows you to serve up a
single win32 window based on window title. See the bottom of
I don't know if this handles things like window
I imagine that when handling multiple windows things would get trickier. How
do you handle things like one server window covering up part of another
server window, and thus the lower server window isn't getting redraw events
on the server side? You'd also need a way to be notified if windows were
being created on the server. Then theres the matter of multiple clients.
