I am not a Photon guru. I believe that the always on top flag only
deals with other windows in the same process.
so, obviously I was not too wrong.
However, . . .
You could spawn those other applications and have them start minimized
(iconified -Si) and then send them a message to indicaet when they
should go to normal size window, whatever that is.
my approach is quite similar: starting the applications out of the
viewing Range and then synchronized moving them to the right position
using a semaphore. So it is just a blitting operation which goes quite
fast (probably accelerated by the graphics driver).
Thanks again for your reply.
