bring a view to the front of its group without changing the focus

It should be possible to bring a View to the front of its group without giving it focus.

I have a panel where users can issue commands to a debugger that runs in a background thread. My problem is that I want the panel to stay focused after the user sends a command with the return key. But I can't show the panel again in the on_done handler because the handler will only queue the command and immediately return.

When the program stops, I have to load the file where it stopped and set a marker in a line (which it seems I can only do after it finishes loading). I want to set the marker, bringing the file to front, AND still keep my input panel focused.
