Hi,

In my GUI application, I use QProcess to start a 3rd party GUI application (I don't have the code, I only have to executable).

I would like the 3rd party GUI window always stays on top of my GUI window ( just like a QDialog does). Is there a way to do so?

Thanks

The general answer is "no". You could use XEmbed to embed alien application into your own window but you have to know the window id of the window. And this is definitely out of scope of this forum.
