Hidden Dialog box
Posted on 1998-11-12
I've seen this done a few times and every time I've been amazed. Can someone please tell me how to make a visual C++ app that can play around with the screen no matter what program the user is in. If you've ever seen one of those crazy desktop games, like the cat that follows the mouse cursor around the screen as your working, than you know what I'm talking about. The program only shows an icon in the taskbar, and that's it!
I know of a cheap way to draw on the desktop by capturing the screen and the playing with it, but that traps the user within the program and won't allow the user to keep working in other applications.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
