Keeping a Dialog Always On Top - Compiled Script

Post by Phil Pendlebury » Sat Jul 02, 2022 7:59 am

I have the line:

Code: Select all

FormStyle = fsStayOnTop
In my dialog and it works fine when testing the script.

But when the script is compiled it seems that the dialog gets knocked out of focus.

Has anyone any thoughts on this one?

Thanks JRL.

Funny coincidence is that this is one of the rare cases where I did not use the loop method for my dialog. :lol:

Still having issues with focus though. It's a conundrum for sure.

I am using ObjectSendKeys (as the main dialog is AOT but the modifier keys just do not work. So I am sending them as normal Press / Release. But then they are focussed on the dialog and keep activating the dialog menu.

Anyway thanks again I will keep you updated. :-)
