When I try to create ruler guides for the bleed area, they disapear as soon
as I let go of the mouse button after I drag them over.
Is there a way to set the ruler guides to always stay on top of all images?
Or is there perhaps another solution to my problem?
The guides always go under everything. It will be the same in 2010.

I have a problem. I have a CPropertySheet window that I want to always

be annoying), just always above the parent window. The example of what

Designing a form, and the properties window is always on top - and unless
I'm actually setting properties on a control, always in the way. I don't

other access windows when not in focus, such as when I'm adding a new
control or setting background color for the form.
Any help here? It's driving me batty!

Is there a reason why a modeless dialog is on the top/forefront of the
screen? Is there a way to prevent this? Also is there a way to minimize
the modeless child dialog when the parent is minimized? code examples
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
If you are talking about the child dialog always being in front of the
parent dialog, that is how things are. If you want the child to be placed
behind the parent, then the two dialogs have to be sibilings (meaning they
must both have the same parent).
m_ChildDialog.Create(CChildDlg::IDD,GetParent())...How to make a popup window always on top
My MFC application has a main frame window and a number of popup windows. I
want one of these popup windows to remain on top of the rest, as if it has
the "always on top" property but only within my application.
If I use SetWindowPos to give it the "topmost" property, it appears above
all windows from _any_ application, not just mine, even when other
applications are in the foreground -- this isn't what I want. Worse, any
dialogs or message boxes that my application brings up get placed behind it,
so that you can't see them.

..."always on top" working too well
I'm developing a dialogue-based application. I've set it as "always on
top" by using
SetWindowPos(&wndTopMost, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOMOVE | SWP_NOSIZE)
The problem is when I display a error box (with MessageBox), the box
ends up underneath my dialogue.
How can I display errors above an "always on top" window?
WHen you display your message box, make sure that the top-most dialog is the
parent of the message box.

Is this a "feature" which I can turn off or a bug?
It’s a bug and is limited to just you. :)
Are you using any add-ins? Because LinkedIn is known to cause this and as do
other add-ins when used over VPN (again, older versions of outlook), I'd
look at addins. Try starting outlook in safe mode to see if it works ok.
