"Always on top" window attribute

6 posts in this topic

Does Autoit provide a mechanism of determining whether the currently active window is defined to be "always ontop". I'm not sure if I have the name of this attribute correctly but some windows are defined to always stay on top of all others.

Thanks

No, i don think that there any specific command that can get this info (and to bad), this example is show that even WinGetState() can not get this info:

$Gui = GUICreate("test", 200, 200)
GUISetState()
WinSetOnTop($Gui, "", 0)

MsgBox(262144, "", WinGetState($Gui))

Just change the 0 to 1, and run it after, and before, and you will always get 15.

But maby it is possible using DllCals, but you should ask someone ho work better then me with DllCalls funcs :whistle:.

Thanks, but I don't know who to ask. I think that "GetwindowsLong" gives that info but I don't know how to use it.

See if this works:

$hWin = WinGetHandle('Window Name Here')
If _WinIsOnTop($hWin) Then MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'Window has On Top Attribute')

Func _WinIsOnTop($hWnd)
    If IsHWnd($hWnd) = 0 And WinExists($hWnd) Then $hWnd = WinGetHandle($hWnd)
    Local $aU32DLL = DllCall('User32.dll', 'long', 'GetWindowLong', 'hwnd', $hWnd, 'int', -20)
    If IsArray($aU32DLL) Then Return BitAND(0x00000008, $aU32DLL[0])
    Return SetError(1, 0, 0)

Thanks, I tried it and it looks great. Also it gives me a chance to learn how to use DLLs like "GetWindowLong" .

Have a great day.
