The TopMost(bool) function sets or resets the x11 attribute for a window that can stay on top of all the others.

Here's the fix for the Eye Care example for linux folks.

void EyeCare::Sync()
{
#ifdef PLATFORM_WIN32
	ExStyle(config.topmost ? GetExStyle() | WS_EX_TOPMOST
	                       : GetExStyle() & ~WS_EX_TOPMOST);
  // -rs add these two lines
#else
	config.topmost ? TopMost(true) : TopMost(false);
#endif
	trayicon.Icon(ignore ? EyeCareImg::off() : EyeCareImg::icon());
	if(config.hideicon)
		ignore = false;
	trayicon.Show(!config.hideicon);
	Restart();
}

	trayicon.Show(!config.hideicon);

}




Thanks for reporting. The problem was that by the time that example was created, TopWindow did not have TopMost method yet. Now whole thing was replaced with TopMost(config.topmost).

There's a way to set the _NET_STAYS_ON_TOP (or whatever it's called) atom in X without any dependency on Qt or any other toolkit.

I've done it with FLTK 2.0 (a discontinued version). But I don't yet know how to integrate it into U++ yet or if that's even desirable. What we have now works but if we need generic X11 code, I may be able to help. Smile

How long will it be before the eye care 'corrected' example will be included in the upp downloads.

"TopWindow did not have TopMost method yet"

"Now whole thing was replaced with TopMost(config.topmost)."

Is this how the upp code will handle topmost?
