restrict new window placement

Recommended Posts

hello all,

I have a scipt that creates a gui on the top of the screen. When it is shown i would like any open windows to be resized and any new window to appear below the GUI. I have tried the $WS_EX_Topmost flag but it still allow the windows to be hidden by my GUI.

What am I missing?

Please post some code for better assistance...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
while 1
if @DesktopWidth = 768 Then
    ;     Tablet Mode Detected
    if WinExists("My GUI") = 0 Then
        GUICreate("My GUI",768,300,0,0,$WS_BORDER,$WS_EX_TOPMOST )  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
        GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)       ; will display an empty dialog box
; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
if @DesktopWidth = 1024 Then
    GUIDelete("My GUI")

   ; If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

this is for a tablet pc, it has a 1' band across the top that does not accept input. I want to cover it with my GUI when in tablet mode
