Keep display on top of all other windows

Post by amiga23 » Sat Apr 08, 2017 9:28 am

It would be a great feature if a display could be set to stay always on top.
For example my application "Feierabend" could stay always on top and show the countdown till "Feierabend".

Borderless displays do not get the decoration of the operating systems window manager, so there is no context menu to switch "Stay on top".

For me Linux, MacOS, MorphOS and AmigaOS would be important in that order :-)

Do you mean a modal RapaGui window or a splash screen?

I guess he means normal Hollywood displays, not RapaGUI windows... (which are managed by GTK+ on Linux)

Yes exactly, I mean normal Hollywood displays on top of all other windows, also on top of other applications.

Ok, feature request noted. I'll see if it can be implemented.

Code: Select all

- New: Added "AlwaysOnTop" tag to @DISPLAY and CreateDisplay(); if this is set to TRUE, the respective
  display will always stay above all other windows on the desktop; the new tag is also available as
  a command line argument; always-on-top windows are currently only supported on MorphOS, AmigaOS 4,
  Linux, and Windows

Cool :-)

Is it available in current RapaGUI version or will it be available in next Hollywood version?

It has been added to Hollywood itself, not RapaGUI because I think you were asking for always on top support in Hollywood, not RapaGUI (see posts above)...

Okay, I was just wondering, because there was no new Hollywood release. So it is not yet available and will be in the next release.
