Always on top transparent window & application?


  • For the purpose of a demo I need to allow some annotation on a PDF file

    Is it possible to create “always on top transparent application” which will overlay another running application(windows reader)?

    And draw some free sketch on it?

    Thanks in advance

  • There is no way to do this. Metro style apps cannot overlap or interact with other.

    You would need to use a 3rd party PDF control or implement one yourself. I am not aware of any existing PDF controls (but I haven't looked).
