    Creating a popup window above an another.

    I have a `handle` to third party window (not created by me, retrieved using the `FindWindow` function). Now I'd kile to create a small popup style window that will ALWAYS be laid down ovev/on top of that third party window. The case is I don't wanna the popup to be always above all the system windows, but ONLY above the window that I've described so I don't wanna use the `HWND_TOPMOST` option in the `SetWindowPos` function.

    How can i achieve it without using the `HWND_TOPMOST` flag?

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.
