    Is there a way to show text that is always on top, either by an always on t

    Is there a way to show text that is always on top, either by an always on top window, or message box that will show when the app is not in focus, or any other way?
    Is there a way to create a window, a dialog or any UI that will be always on top, or always visible to the user?

    RE: Is there a way to show text that is always on top, either by an always on t

    The virtual display area for an application on a handheld device is a real constraint in comparison with a PC's monitor screen. The feature "always on top" is obviously not suitable for such a device, especially where there are many applications can be run simultaneously in the background. But one can implement an application in a way that it can bring itself from the background to the foreground periodically by setting a timer and calling the TApaTask::BringToForeground(). Then also by using the timer to push it back to the background by calling TApaTask::SendToBackground().
