in reply to stay-on-top property for Toplevel for Perl-Tk GUI

I am assuming you are looking to make a global grab ... somthing that will not let the user switch application's, correct ? Well, i never suggest this, as if your program hangs you may well roger the user ... After the warning, take a look at the $widget->grabGlobal() method. I do suggest the grab() method, as it is local. Adding this with the general focus methods/properties should do what you want.

    No, I did not intended to have input only for my app, I was searching for a way to display a small button that will not be obscured by other applications, so a user will be able to see my button (and press it at any time) while being in another application. Something like floating button-bar.

        Thanks a lot!

        I already received a very similar answer, and that code working in my app.
        Your addition is very helpful as well.
