i am useing VS C++ not .net i belive? i want to make a small program screen or dialog in front of a fullscreen video player so that i may makes notes in a txt area or do controaling featurs with that dialog or program screen. the video player still has to beable to get keystrochs so that i may play or stop the video with ctrl f3 or somthing like that. i also want it to beable to open differnet files to that player. i think i can just do that with closing a handle and then opeing another video player? this dialog/program has to be in front but not be the active page all the time but still always be in front. i dont know if i have to have this program/dialog pass the commands to the player or is there any way else to do it.
i know i have repeted myself be i am trying to be clear on what it has to do. i have no idea how to make screens acitve or always in front and how they interact with each other.
