WinSetOnTop() doesn't keep window on top?

Recommended Posts

As far as I understand, this code:

msgbox(0,"test","stay on top")
winsetontop("test","",1)

should make a MsgBox() window that is always on top, even if it isn't active. But when I run the script, I just get a MsgBox() that goes behind any other window when I click on that window, the same as it would if I didn't have the WinSetOnTop() line. It seems like WinSetOnTop() isn't doing anything. Am I using it correctly?

I'm running AutoIt v3.2.10.0 on Windows 2000.

The problem is that MsgBox() is a blocking function, it pauses your script until you close it. therefore the WinSetOnTop() executes after the MsgBox is closed, to fix this try making your own msgbox :D

Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!

You can set a TOPMOST style, too : MsgBox(262144,"top",":D")
