Hi,

I have two controls in my application which are placed on a dialog. One is standard control and the other one is custom control.

I would like to have custom control to be always on the top. I have already tried with BringWindowToTop but doesn't seem to work. Can any one help me with this?

Regards,
Chutki.

Hi Chutki,

set control to be on top:
pWndCustom->SetWindowPos( &wndTop, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOACTIVATE|SWP_NOMOVE|SWP_NOSIZE );

Maybe you need to assign the WS_CLIPSIBLINGS to the other control to avoid the overlapping part of the
custom control is 'overpainted' with the underlying one...

hope that helps,

ZOPPO
