Hi everyone!

Is there any backend-independent way to get and set the figure window coordinates and sizes (i.e. in pixels)? Currently when I make new plots they appear in random locations as determined by my operating system; during analysis when I'm making and destroying a lot of plot windows I want to be able to have them automatically appear in "good" locations (such as the upper left corner of my screen).

Also, I am trying to find ways to get/set the z-order.

Thanks in advance,

There was someone who found that it was possible to add some additional information to the creation of a figure window.  This information (at least on Linux systems), could be taken advantage of by customized configurations of the desktop manager.  I would be curious to see what has come of that effort.
