  • Window Always on top...

    Hi again.
    I have a problem with my apps.
    I created mix of free programs for Windows 7 and I use a "fake" kiosk.
    It's very cool, but when I start installation the window of my program not kiosk background, every time is on top and I don't have access to window of installation program.
    I checked the project settings and "Allways on top" is unchecking. I use Flat Style.
    Is there way to avoid this inconvenience?

    you can minimize your window Application.

      You can try:

      Get the handle of your "installation" program by either:
      1. enumerating the programs running to get the handle of your "installation" program
      2. use Imagine-Programmings' RunProgEx to get the handle on launch

      Send the program (via handle) to the top using reteset's WinAPI plugin, WinApi.SetForegroundWindow(WndH)

      Cheers,
      MadDogDean

        Before using a plugin, try with the native function Window.SetOrder

            Unfortunately I can't use WinApi Plugin with AMS 8. I don't now why. In fact, I use AMS rarely which will means I don't have big skills. But I would be try if somebody tell me how with example, my be.

            Well I'm not sure about that, but build kiosk is not support images .... however.
            I guessed that kiosk rather it's "fake"...
            As I said, I'm not sure for that.

              Why do you say that? Of course you can use images in kiosk mode.

                Not correct, you can choose the color of the area surrounding the app but not add images.

                By this, RizlaUk published the "FakeKiosk.dll" that allows to fill the surrounding area with an image. But it seems that neither RizlaUK remembers it.

                  I apologies for my question. It's not to this topic and if it need from new topic, you just say.

                  My project is ready, almost.
                  To finish it I want to add some mp3 files (10 tracks). I add it, but with native player I can't play preview song.
                  For next song I use Audio.Seek(CHANNEL_BACKGROUND, SEEK_END, 0); and next song play immediately but for previous .... I don't know how to do that. SEEK_BEGINNING simply returns the song at the beginning.

                  I need just that, switching to beginning the previous track.

                    Let's be clear. I was talking about the AMS application 'stage' and not the screen area. If the need arose, I would re-size a flat window to the screen dimensions.

                        Well, I'm not sure, but yes I think ... it's yours.

                        Some suggestion about Audio Seek?
                        However I'll put new topic.
