On Screen Display
« on: July 26, 2014, 02:15:45 pm »
Dear people!

I'm looking for a solution to draw texts or images as an omnipresent borderless, full screen window on the top of every window in Windows 7. I'd need to pass every event to the windows underneath, as if wasn't even there. The user should be able to see every windows beneath, as normally.

I'm wondering if it is possible to do this with SFML?

Thanks for your answers in advance!

Cheers,
easy

Edited to make it more clear what I'd like to achieve.

This isn't possible with SFML alone. You'll have to use a lot of OS specific calls. I'm not even sure you'll benefit from using SFML.
