#NoTrayIcon
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Ttile", 300, 200, -1, -1)
$ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("A|B|C", 15, 15, 270, 118)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

; assign parent to desktop --> stay behind all apps
$desktop = ControlGetHandle("Program Manager",'','SysListView321')
_WinAPI_SetParent($Form1, $desktop)

While 1
 $msg = GuiGetMsg()
 Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
 EndSelect
WEnd

Looks like it's time for you to search the forum (because it's been answered), or learn how to use M$ API calls: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633545(VS.85).aspx

i have done a search andd they all consist of setting it to the parent of process manager. my app will close explorer.exe(therefor the window no longer exists to set it parent to). Is there perhaps a way to do the oposit and set it to the child of every open window?

I gave you a link to fix your issues, write some code, see if it works, post it if it doesn't, but don't bump until you've proved you've tried.

i just said the nly code i found on that page REQUIRES explorer.exe to be running, this app will run without explorer.exe running.

Then you obviously haven't taken the time to read the link I've provided. Or you only saw 1 solution and skipped the rest (specifically what Martin was working on in that thread).
