I am designing a Dialog application that is a test guide program to run while a user is doing the things instructed in the dialogs. Here is what I want. No matter what...I want this dialog to be in front of every window on the screen. The idea is that when the user goes to do something that the dialog instructs them to do...they can still read my dialog...it doesn't get lost behind the active window. Is there a way to do this???

inside your dialog's OnInitDialog() function, write:

SetWindowPos(&CWnd::wndTopMost, 0,0,0,0, SWP_NOSIZE|SWP_NOMOVE);

If OnInitDialog() function does not exist, create it with Class Wizard.

Alternatively, set the 'WS_EX_TOPMOST' style in the dialog's resources.
