Klicko

1.1.1
08 May 2009

Blocks clickthrough, maximizes application windows.

Overview

Note: Klicko is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

Klicko... In the Classic days, if you wanted to use a window that wasn't frontmost, you could click anywhere on it to bring it to the front. Mac OS X introduced a feature called "click-through" where certain controls, like the "traffic-light" buttons in the window title, would work even for background windows. Applications can also make other controls, or even the entire window, work with click-through.

Klicko blocks click-through inside application windows. You can make a list of included or excluded applications, or hold down a modifier key to momentarily override Klicko.

Klicko is a System Preferences panel written in Cocoa. It doesn't hack the system, other applications, inject code or do anything magic. Klicko also has two other convenient functions: window maximizing and bringing all windows of some application to the front.

A new build, 1.1(181) is out. Use the built-in "Check for Updates" function. It fixes a small incompatibility with Exposé (you had to click twice in some cases) and is, again, localized into French. Thanks to "follerec" for the heads-up.

Would love to find a way to exclude Exposé. Using Exposé now requires to clicks to activate a Window. Otherwise... great app!

Can you email me with specific examples about this? Here for me, Exposé needs only one click.

I installed Klicko to tame the "Click through" beast. Did indeed. However, there was a side effect. In some instances clicking on a dialog box button no longer worked; now a command-click was required.

The latest build (the version number hasn't changed) fixes the issue with dialog boxes and palette windows. There's still some remaining oddities but I'm working on them.
