Display form / text / anything on top of a DirectX application
Posted on 2003-11-08
I am looking to make a program which can display the current time, on top of all windows, but primaryli games, which use DirectX. (Most games haven't got an ingame clock, and its not possible to check the clock in the systray when playing)
I have a program working, using SetWindowPos, and its working fine when in Windows .. but when running games, i've only yet found one where it works, the rest the display just shows for a splitsecond (i guess a single frame), and then disappears.
Is it at all possible to do this from Visual Basic?
I've seen some other apps that can do this, so I know its possible.
