SetWindowPos(hwnd, HWND_TOPMOST, x, y, cx, cy, flags);

No offense, but you should be able to find these kind of answers by yourself. The MSDN is here (http://msdn.microsoft.com) .

Thank you for your help. But I did know that.
My program doesn't use MFC, but is just command mode (has void main(void)) I'm so sorry I didn't know the name because I'm a beginner as a programmer.
Anyway do you understand me?
Could you tell me the solution? Thank you

You must create a window somewhere, no? Thus you should have an HWND to that window. You can then use SetWindowPos() on it.

Hi~ Do you know the function WinExec()?
By this function, I call other program on my GUI environment.
There is void main(void) on the source code of other program. Could you understand?
The main function is following...

glutInit(&argc, argv);
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_RGB);
glutInitWindowSize(pixel_width, pixel_height);

As my thought, I should change this main function to set openGL window alway on top.
Is it correct?
Please help me. T.T
