    you can try lower() on the child or you can just hide() the child and show() it again when required.
    If you can tell us the exact thing you are trying to do, it would be better.

    You cant! This question was asked recently... (use a parent less window)

    ok, thank you

    but with a parentless window a new button in the taskbar is created

    i read http://www.qtcentre.org/forum/f-qt-p...ows-20944.html
    the problem appears to be only on Windows, i hope that's a bug so it will be fixed, because there is no easy way to do that since raise() and lower() work only for children

    No, it's not a bug. It is meant to be this way and it will not change because this is the expected behaviour in windowing systems.
    1. top level windows which are not dialogs have taskbar entries
    2. child windows are always above their parent windows.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.
