Maybe this question is a bit silly one. However, I failed to answer or classify it. I create a DirectX graphicial application. In which the main window display 3D scenario. I nead other windows (just Dialog boxes)to display some thing which must be on the topmost to see the results. The problem is that: when the application is in Window mode (assign a certain size), I can set the dialogs on the topmost to see my aux-display. But I change into full-screen mode of the main window, the dialogs couldnot see on the topmost any more although I have set their flag HWND_TOPMOST. Anybody has any idea, help, suggestion or comment? Thanks and hope for helping soon!

In full-screen mode, the 3D display can have (and usually: has) full priority and other windows may (and usually: will) not be displayed. The easiest solution is to always run in windowed mode, even if you want full-screen (just make your main window WS_POPUP and set it to the dimensions of the whole screen).
