Hi Samuel!

I don't think it's possible. I guess if simulating mouse clicks work
then that is a solution (although it sounds fragile). Did you know that
you are able to change the focus of which parts of the patch are
rendered on screen ("viewport") using a feature that Antoine added - see
pure-widgets-demo in the droidparty-demos folder.
