Window on top

Recommended Posts

luvmachine

Hello there, I tried using the search function first but it kept giving me weird erros when I would search stuff like "allways on top".

So what I'm wonder is: Is there a way to make a window be "on top" of other windows all the time. So like you could set your IM to allways show above your Web Browser. Any answer would be helpful, and thank you.

the solution you're looking for is the extended window style $WS_EX_TOPMOST . one reason you're not getting proper results may be the way you're spelling always. not saying that to be critical, just an fyi...
