How to make a Stay-On-Top application like task manager

    Question

  • Hi,

     

    Task Manager can keep itself on top of all desktop or even metro style apps. This is very useful in some cases. I'd like to know if it is possible for developers to make an application like that. I've verified that a normal MFC Topmost application can not keep on top over metro style apps.

     

    Thanks.

  • This is available to accessibility applications manifested with the UIAccess attribute.  It should not be used on arbitrary applications.  See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms742884.aspx .
