in Embedded Wizard Studio by

I would like ot know if it is possible to put a view on top of everything, like a statur bar in android.

I have several dialogs and I switch between them depending on the user inputs. I want to have a status bar where I show the time, battery status, etc, all the time on screen.

I could copy the status bar in every screen, but this means tens of copies of one single thing and do not know how it affects the size of the project. Ideally I want the status bar on top of everything, while the user can still interact with whatever is bellow.

Thanks a lot for the support.

Hello Gazi,

if you are using the latest version 9.30 you can configure the StackingPriority for a view or even a component to be higher than the of other sibling views. This enforces the view to be always top-most.

If you are working with an older version, you can use one of the following workarounds:

Option 1: Please see GUI component on top of a dialog.

Option 2: Make the dialogs smaller so there is a free space to see the contents lying behind the dialogs.

Option 3: Leave the area within the dialog empty so the contents lying behind it are visible.

I hope one of the solutions help you further.

Best regards
