Since: Version 20230320-124340-559cb7b0

The functionality described in this section requires version 20230320-124340-559cb7b0 of wezterm, or a more recent version.

Activates a GUI window relative to the current window.

ActivateWindowRelativeNoWrap(1) activates the next window, while ActivateWindowRelativeNoWrap(-1) activates the previous window.

This action will NOT wrap around; if the current window is the first/last, then this action will not change the current window.

Here's an example of setting up (not very useful) hotkeys to cycle between windows:

local wezterm = require 'wezterm'
local act = wezterm.action
local config = {}

config.keys = {
    key = 'r',
    mods = 'ALT',
    action = act.ActivateWindowRelativeNoWrap(1),
    key = 'e',
    mods = 'ALT',
    action = act.ActivateWindowRelativeNoWrap(-1),
return config
