I know that it can be done; at least most window managers have an option for that in any program's "system" menu. What I don't know is how it could be done programatically, though it probably involves some DBus message or something like that.

Thanx for the answer, lucamar

I've searched my known sources but did not find anything.

But now I know something useless:

How to prohibit that the user of your app does not change this virtual screen.
Very simple:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. screen.MoveFormToZFront(self);  

My hope was that the app would appear on the virt screen I just changed to.
But - buff - I was sent back to the virt screen I came from. 
Must have a deeper look.

If that does not help I will have  a look to the KDE interface.
