I'd like to have the following code in my library:

(when (not (buffer-visible-p es-results-buffer))
  (view-buffer-other-window es-results-buffer))

However, I haven't been able to find a function for buffer-visible-p. Is there such a function?

  • results-buffer or es-results-buffer?

You are looking for get-buffer-window, or you can iterate over the list of all visible windows yourself.
