Mandatory Window

Recommended Posts

shornw

Hi all,

I have created a form to deploy to all users, at logon, on our domain. Most have completed it, but as is usual there are some who will not and just leave it open in the background then log-off. I now have to make this mandatory, so I'm thinking always on top and either centralised or full screen.

If I go with full screen, can the window be un-minimisable and if so how?

If I go with always on top can it be un-moveable, so users cant drag it to the bottom corner then continue working, and if so, how?

Suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks

I can think of a combination of 2 techniques:

  • Set Window on top: Please see this link
  • Make the window unmoveable: Please see this link
HTH

BTW: As you can see the forum search function is your friend ;)

Thank you Water.

I couldn't use the 'On-top' solution as the users can simply move the window out of the way. I went with the $WS_POPUPWINDOW and resized it to almost fill the screen.

Thanks for your help, very much appreciated
