nend,

Look at _WinAPI_SetWindowPos in the Help file. If you set the $hAfter parameter to $HWND_BOTTOM (Places the window at the bottom of the Z order) you should get what you want. I certainly did when I tested it. ;)

I don't think there is any easy way to do this; the best i can think of is this:

- find all visible windows (see help file example for WinList() )

- WinActivate 'your' window (the one you want 'on bottom'

- WinActivate other windows in the order you want them

Let's see if any WinAPI experts come up with a better solution, because

i fully agree this s*cks,

cheers,

edit: thanks Melba, that was FAST ;)

BTW is there any way to convince the forum to warn you of a new

post in the thread while you are composing an answer ?

I suspect not.

Just open another tab in your browser at the same place and refresh it before you post to see what's changed if anything. You can always delete a post anyway if you see that it's redundant because someone was faster.
