  • Hi O,

    Can you give me an example of what you are trying to do?  OSD can mean many things!

  • Hi jpsanders,

    Thanks for you reply. OSD is mean On Screen Display, like Volume +/-.

    Example:

    Media Player(Metro App) is playing, then keyboard(or remote controller) to do play/pause or CH+/- or Volume+/-...

    Do you know mean? 

    Thanks!

  • Hi O,

    Yes I understand now.  OSD works perfectly fine on both of my machines when Metro Style or Desktop applications are running.  Is that what you are asking?  If you are asking if you can create a system object from Metro that would create an OSD, no you cannot.

  • Hi Jpsanders,

    Thanks for you reply.

    So, you mean only volume+/- OSD(System Object) on Metro Screen, not other custom OSD.

    If I'm use Win32 AP to show the OSD on Metro Screen, How do I do?

    Thanks!

  • You should not do this unless you are creating something like the volume control.  See this forum thread for more information:
