Widget stays on top of the qt application
i have currently the following problem:
I have two QMainWindows 'A' and 'B' which both have no parent so they are independent widgets. Now i have a third non modal widget 'C' which should stay on top of widget A and B.
Is there any way to tell a widget to stay on top of all other widgets but only of this application? I only found the flag Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint but by unsing this flag the widget will stay on top of every other window of other application too.

Do you need 2
QMainWindows (or any other
QWidget, there is nothing special about
QMainWindow)? Did you consider, say, one
QStackedWidgetfor your current other two widgets?
The only mean to control this is via parent-child relation but a widget can't have two parents so there's no direct way to do this.
Some workarounds would be to have one main window become a parent of the other. Another one could be switching parent main window e.g. when any of them gets focus or some such tricks.
@JonB Yes in this case it is necessary but thank you for your reply
@Chris-Kawa Ok, I wanted to be sure that i diddn't miss any qt option. I guess i have to make a concept to assign the parent dynamicly. Thanks for the help.
