Stay On Top

Hi All,

How do I prevent a form from flicking when I change its type from 'normal' to 'StayOnTop'?

Regards,
Dion.

VCL doesn't handle too well the FormStyle Change because it needs to support all possible cases.

Instead of changing the style by FormStyle, use:

SetWindowPos(Handle,HWND_TOPMOST,0,0,0,0,SWP_NOMOVE or SWP_NOSIZE or SWP_NOACTIVATE);

when going topmost and

SetWindowPos(Handle,HWND_NOTOPMOST,0,0,0,0,SWP_NOMOVE or SWP_NOSIZE or SWP_NOACTIVATE);

when returning to normal state.

HTH,
F.
