Feature request: turn off unit-test-window-on top

Hi-

When I activate the VS 2008 window, my resharper unit test window comes to the front, which I find kind of annoying.  Is there any possibility of adding a feature to turn this off?  I'd rather just bring it to the front when I need it.

Thanks!

Hello Mike
     Could you please illustrate the problem with a screenshot? The Unit Test Sessions window is implemented as an ordinary Visual Studio tool window and ReSharper doesn't do anything special in order to bring it to the front.

It's probably easier to describe than to capture.  I have two monitors, and VS2008 in the left one and the Resharper test interface in the other.  I normally launch a web browser in the right monitor to debug my project, and it comes up on top of the Resharper unit test window, which is fine.  But when I click on VS2008, e.g. to step through something with the debugger, the Resharper window comes to the front as well, over top of the web browser.

This is a very minor issue.  But I thought that it might be easy to add a "move-test-runner-to-front-when-VS-activated" flag that I could turn off.

Hello Mike,

ReSharper's toolwindow is standard VS toolwindow. There is no such flag in
VS. Try some other window, like Watch, you will see the same behavior.
