Hello,

I'm quite new to programming, making my first steps in Visual Studio.NET.

I'm trying to develop a simple windows aplication that displays text in the desktop/foreground whatever is running on the computer.

What would be an easy way to do it. My main difficultie here is to know how to do for the text to appear wherever I want it, and not inside an usual form.

Thanks,
babi

Hi,

Set the color of your form to a color you won't use (Teal for example) and set the TransparencyKey of your form to the same color. Put a Text control to the center of the form, put your text in the text control. Set FormBorderStyle to None; Hide your form and show when ever necessary. (Works on 2000/XP only)
