[Project_owners] topmost window/dialog?

Is there a way to create a window or dialog which remains topmost in the z-order, but loses its
focus when the user focuses another window? I'm not asking about modal dialogs/windows. In
Windows, this type of window has the WS_EX_TOPMOST style. An example is the "Find" dialog in
Microsoft Word, IE, etc. If the "Find" dialog is displayed, the user is still capable of
navigating through the document in the background (parent) window, yet the "Find" dialog remains
topmost and unfocused.

Thanks for any help,
Eric Jung
