       raise - Change a window's position in the stacking order


       raise window ?aboveThis?


       If  the  aboveThis  argument is omitted then the command raises window so that it is above
       all of its siblings in the stacking order (it will not be obscured  by  any  siblings  and
       will obscure any siblings that overlap it).  If aboveThis is specified then it must be the
       path name of a window that is either a sibling of window or the descendant of a sibling of
       window.   In  this  case the raise command will insert window into the stacking order just
       above aboveThis (or the ancestor of aboveThis that is a sibling of window); this could end
       up either raising or lowering window.

       All  toplevel windows may be restacked with respect to each other, whatever their relative
       path names, but the window manager is not obligated to strictly honor requests to restack.

       On macOS raising an iconified toplevel window causes it to be deiconified.


       Make a button appear to be in a sibling frame that was created after it. This is is  often
       necessary  when  building  GUIs  in the style where you create your activity widgets first
       before laying them out on the display:
              button .b -text "Hi there!"
              pack [frame .f -background blue]
              pack [label .f.l1 -text "This is above"]
              pack .b -in .f
              pack [label .f.l2 -text "This is below"]
              raise .b
