Always on top

I have an SDI application.  I need to make the application stay "always on top".  I can do this with dialogs in an application, or the child windows of a MDI app.  This seems to be very similar to the Task Manager, always on top option.

Thanks in advance.

m_pMainWnd->SetWindowPosition(HWND_TOPMOST,X,Y,width,heigth,Flags);

m_pMainWnd is global variable in every SDI application.
