Hey all, I've recently begun learning visual basic using visual basic express 2008 with plans to purchase visual studio 2008 (it'll be worth it as I've used C++ for a very long time, I just wanted to learn vb and vb.net). What I'm very interested in right now is creating an application that will create an overlay while another application is running. Say I am playing a game, and I want this program to overlay my game once I enter a key combination such as ctrl+s without minimizing my game/application. Is this possible? If so, does anyone mind pointing me in the direction of where I can learn to being the structure for this. PLEASE do not hand me the source code, I really need to learn to do this myself, I would just like some insight as to if it is possible, and if it is, where I may begin learning about it. Thank you.
