Drawing a form in the DC of a third-party application
Posted on 2006-04-28
I have a game that when running, runs in full screen mode. I am wondering if it is possible to write an application that would allow a visual pop-up in the DC of the game window. Basically, I want to show a notification when something occurs on my PC, like a Skype call or email received, etc... I have wriiten a program that can tell when the game is active and seems to correctly get the DC of the game window. I just can't seem to find a way to draw into the DC... If someone could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. Some code would help too :-) I just want to pop up the window, be able to move it to another part of the screen or close it.
