    Hi xiaojun,
    windows manager doesn't allow floating windows. Banners are a special case.. but they have a special window type not supported by Qt (
    You can change the window type, but I don't think you will able to get it working.

    Do you wish to display another floating window on top of your main one or ? Maemo does not really encourage/support floating ones (except with things like Hildon banners or slide-in Dialogs) as usually they impede on the mobile usage and would have window manager/focus issues as well. Can you describe your use case, maybe there is a simpler way to accomplish what you are trying to do ?
