Keeping a Window "on Top"

Some applications offer an option for a window to always stay “on top” of all other open windows.

My application consists of a Main Window, but other windows are opened and closed by the user depending on what function they are doing. Many users have asked for one of those windows to be special and to always stay on top of all other open windows.

Is there a way top designated a Xojo Window to always stay on top opf others ?

You can window.show the designated window after you are finished in each other window.

Sorry for the fat fingers…

Is there a way to designate a Xojo Window to always stay on top of others ?

In the inspector for the window that will stay on top, set its Type (located in the frame grouping) to “floating window” or “global floating window.” Floating will be on top of all windows for only your application, global floating will remain on top of all open applications.

Thank you, Jason - Just what I was looking for.

This sure seems like a setting that can only be done at compile time. Is there any way to make “stay on top” a user-selectable option ?
