Opening Desktop Application in foreground
« on: September 23, 2014, 08:53:48 pm »
Hi All.
I am trying to create a touchscreen with a button that opens VLC Player using the Desktop driver.
It works ok but the TouchScreen viewer always stays in the foreground and VLC cannot be seen.
I have tried using the ToFront Method but TS Viewer still takes priority.
Seems to work ok if TS Viewer is not in full screen mode but I am hoping to have this screen in Kiosk Mode.
Anybody know any way around this?
Thanks guys.

do you need to go back to viewer after vlc? I had issues trying to launch stuff back in the day from the desktop app. maybe you could invoke something that can trigger event ghost.  event ghost has been able to solve a lot of my touch screen to remote pc woes.

I always wanted to be somebody. In retrospect, I think I should have been more specific.
