Window focus issues

Post

Let's say I have an app with 2 windows - 1 large, 1 small.  The small window comes up on top of the big window and the cursor is in a edit

field on the small window.  I would like to be able to click into the larger window's area with the mouse but still have the smaller window showing.

What happens now when I click away is that the small window disappears behind the big one and can only be brought back by manually selecting

the now-disappeared window using the Windows pulldown menu.

 

In Visual Foxpro, it was easy (sigh).  You could set the AlwaysOnTop property of a given window to True and if the mouse was clicked away from

such a window, the inactive window remained visible and on top of the now-active underlying window.  

 

Any way to duplicate such behavior in FMP??
