How can I shut down running screensaver from within my Delphi 2.0 application? And how can I bring my application's main window above all other running applications? (Just once, not with fsStayOnTop - neither Show nor BringToFront doesn't work)

Thanx a lot...   Bocian

SetCursorPos

This should work the same way as moving the mouse, and if the screensaver is not password protected it should stop running.

Regards,

Erik.

Hmmm...

Have you tried

  Application.Restore
or
  Application.BringToFront?
or
  ShowWindow(Application.Handle, SW_SHOW)
or
  ShowWindow(Application.MainForm.Handle, SW_SHOW);


Regards,

Erik.
