Topic: Vst Window Always On Top
grennoPRO InfinityMember since 2012
Would it be possible to get an option to set Vst windows to be always on top?

It would really help me out greatly to be able to keep the Vst's I have open above any other windows I have!

The answer is NO
even usind things like "AltMove" tools do not help
there is no window handling in VDJ some window can top, some can't only video can always on top
as all windows are virtualdj one, main can't top over the other ones

In fact yes, AltMove alllow VST gui to be always on top but no other VDJ /skin windows
may be due to the fact they are in different process

Its just a window...
So you could use any of the available tools for Windows to keep a window on top likely.

strange request from what I'm seeing here, my machine a vst gui is a popup for vdj so it's always on top if vdj is visible.
I don't think I tweaked anything to set it this way. win 10 pro x64

Yeah it's always on top if vdj is the focus. However I use a second piece of software on a second screen, which I'd like the vst to display over. Obviously when I focus on the second piece of software, it displays over the vst.

Bit of a strange request but thought it might be fairly easy to just implement it in a future update as a simple binary option I.e. VSTAlwaysOnTop

Just thought I'd ask!

Thanks for all the replies
