Review request for kdelibs, kdewin, Patrick Spendrin, and Hannah von Reth.

Bugs: 258489

Repository: kdelibs


Currently when a second instance of a KUniqueApplication is created KUniqueapplication on Windows just tries to bring the existing process to the front. The problem with this is that the commandline arguments are lost. Kontact parts of kdepim solved this problem in pimuniqueapplication by calling NewInstance with the correct parameters on the existing application.
This review Request is about adding that code from kdepimlibs/kontactinterface/pimuniqueapplication.cpp also to KUniqueapplication on Windows.


  kdeui/kernel/kuniqueapplication.cpp 777fc35 



Tested with Kleopatra on Windows.
