    Always On Top, How?

    Okay, I'm just tinkering with C++, slowly learning it, and I am wondering how to make the window be always on top for my program, right now I'm just doing this small countdown thing and I want to window that is in to be always on top.

    Always wanting to be on top is what got Adam in trouble with Lilith and we ended up with that gullible Eve.

    When you create the window, one of the window extended styles is WS_EX_TOPMOST, use it.

    Hmmm, yeah, I'm just using a console program, so I'm not actually creating the window.

    After leaving Adam, Lilith ran off and hooked up with some demons and had giant babies. She never ate the fruit of knowledge of good and evil, so she's still running around this earth somewhere.

    Anyway, You could try using GetConsoleWindow and SetWindowPos.
