Add a message handler for WM_CREATE in your dialog window and add the following under the handler:
      SetWindowPos(&wndTopMost, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOREPOSITION|SWP_NOSIZE);

Then your dialog will stay on topmost.
I check your rate history and found that all are 'C' except one 'B'. I guess you never rate the answers others provided. I suggest you do that because it will benefit both other people and yourself also.
