What kind of controls are you layering? This can produce unexpected results if the controls beneath the top aren't disabled.

You can bring a control immediately to the top but there is no Z-Index that I am aware of.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI", 100,100)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)       ; will display an empty dialog box

$BOTTOM = GuiCtrlCreateButton("BOTTOM", 20,20,50,50)
$TOP = GuiCtrlCreateButton("TOP", 30,30,50,50)

Sleep(2000)

ControlFocus ( "", "", $BOTTOM)

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

I am trying to create a buffer for an embedded IE. I figured, if I used two IE objects, I could have one load the refresh in the background, and then switch them after the load, so all the user sees is a really quick flicker.

If there is a better way to do this, please let me know, I am more than willing to change the buffer method.

Maybe you can always set the one behind to disabled + hidden.

right, but then I get a long pause of a flicker ( at least 500 Ms of pause )
