    MessageBox(yourHwnd,"text","caption",MB_OK|MB_SYST EMMODAL)


    If you want it to stay ontop of windows just in your app (as oposed to all windows) replace MB_SYSTEMMODAL with MB_APPLMODAL.

    I am trying to do the same thing. Keep message box ontop of everything, but it does not seem to work with many purchased games.

    Is there away to keep a box open over top everything even games that I startup afterwards? (e.g. Quake, Everquest, MW3)

    What I am trying to do is get the message box that displays the time and some other text to show through.

    If the game you are playing is in fullscreen mode AFAIK there is no way of keeping a MessageBox on top.
