Set the window to always be above the others.


int SDL_SetWindowAlwaysOnTop(SDL_Window *window, SDL_bool on_top);

Function Parameters

window The window of which to change the always on top state
on_top SDL_TRUE to set the window always on top, SDL_FALSE to disable

Return Value

Returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


This will add or remove the window's SDL_WINDOW_ALWAYS_ON_TOP flag. This will bring the window to the front and keep the window above the rest.


This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
