What's the possibility of having two windows active at the same time?

Using win32 api for this... For example, I have the parent window active and a child window inactive which holds the player's stats. If I were the player, this window activating would get kinda annoying after a while. As a programmer, 5 seconds. Currently I have each window set as ShowWindow(hWnd, SW_SHOW); and ShowWindow(dWndStats, SW_SHOW); If this isn't possible, maybe taking off the borders and sysmenu would get rid of the deactivating color. But moving the window around for customization would be unavailable.

You could set the child window to always be ontop, that way if it's minimised it's not in the way, and if it's restored its on the top without actually being active (ie not taking user input)
