[wingide-users] Focus on tool box window?

Oops .. apparently show-panel python-shell is not correct syntax.
I had made an autokey script which only gets activated when I'm in wing  
IDE main window, and if I press a hotkey it activates the toolbox window.
Then I tried to designate a hotkey in wingide, and I thought it was  
working, but actually it was autokey script which was doing it.
Sorry for the confusion. (Now I feel like my email is very confusing -  

Anyway, this autokey script is doing exactly what I want.

Thank you,
