Need some help.
I am trying to write an add on to a visualization program. The API's work fine, the problem is, this visualization package has a full screen window (Like a game) and no matter what I do I cant get my window to show on top.

I am set fsStayOnTop and have tried using CreateParams and done the following:

Procedure TForm1.CreateParams 9var Params: TcreateParams);
      inherited CreateParams (params);
      With Params do begin
          ExStyle :=ExStyle or WS_EX_TOPMOST;
          WndParent := GetDeskTopWinodw;

This works fine for all normal windowed applications but not full screen applications. Can someone tell me how to make any Delphi Window float over a full screen application...?

Delphi 5 or 7 please.
