    Hi,

    Where did the always on top option go? I'm using Nagstamon 0.9.9-SVN on
    Windows 7, and I cant seem to find the option to put it on top.

    Hi,
    thanks for testing 0.9.9.
    What exactly do you mean by always on top option? Where is what instead? In
    Windows there should be two options: floating statusbar and systray.
    Regards

    Yes, you're absolutely right. I can't remember if it was an option or not, but
    previous versions stayed on top when using floating statusbar. With the latest
    SVN version, I find myself constantly moving windows / minimizing windows in
    order to find nagstamon.

    Did you use RC17?

    Bad... :-( but I am at the moment on RC18 which is also regarding GUI - I will
    let you know if it is ready to be tested.

    Some minutes ago I released RC18 - could you check if it behaves better?
    Thanks + regards

    Thanks!

    I spoke too soon. I'ts back again. Same scenario for my colleague. It works
    for a while, but then all of a sudden it stops being on top. :-(

    I feared this... do you use Aero on WIndows 7?

    And did it work with versions < 0.9.9?

    Yes, it worked in earlier versions.

    OK i added a newer RC18.exe. Could you give it a try?

    Hi!

    Been running it since yesterday, and not once have it stopped being on top!
    Looks like you're latest version fixed it.

    Hello,

    I just started using Nagstamon on Windows 7 and I love it except I got that
    problem too now.
    As "Statusbar Floating" it is not on top but behind other Windows.

    I downloaded the latest available Version for Windows 0.9.9.

    Any chance to get a Version/Exe with the AlwaysOnTop feature ?

    Thankx a lot

    Dirk

    Hello,
    the alsways-on-top-feature is built in.... sadly it in some configurations
    seems to have that faulty behaviour. I am not using Windows so I cannot test
    on a daily use base.
    Is it always hidden behind other windows or does it hide at once? Some other
    user had the impression that when there are many windows open nagstamon starts
    to hide - is it the same in your case?
    Regards

    Hi,

    I have the exact same problem.
    It's behind all other windows and I can't get it to front.
    I use 2 monitors and have the same problem on both desktops.

    Nice app by the way. :d
    Regards

    I, too, am having this problem ever since updating to the 0.9.9 release. I
    can't go back to the previous version as the system I use doesn't like the
    older versions.
    Nagstamon will stay on top for hours, then all of a sudden decide that it no
    longer wants to sit always on top, but will actively try to go below other
    windows, especially web browsers!

    This is a great tool and very useful, but when it sits underneath everything
    else, it's rather counter-intuitive!!

    This nasty regression bug is on todo list and will get some care the next time
    I find time to develop Nagstamon further. Sorry for the inconvenience... :-(

    Since I'm the original poster I may just as well pop back in and tell you that
    I also have this problem again... :-( I noticed that someone else was also on
    a multi-screen desktop. Is that the case for you other guys?

    Cheers!

    I can confirm this is the case for me too -- I use four screens on Win7.

    Hi,
    Version 0.9.12-devel-20140320 fixed the problem for me. Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 both with dual screen setup. Thank you for the great work!
