Bug? "Find" dialog should be on top of B4A, but not all apps

    In general, I find the B4A IDE easy to work with, but I run into one annoyance every day:

    I typically leave the Find dialog open, and move it to the upper right. That works fine (although I'd prefer to have it as a dockable or expanding panel instead of a separate window).

    However, when I switch to another app (e.g. Firefox), the Find dialog is also on top of that, which is rude from a system-and-other-apps perspective.

    Can the Find dialog be made to be "always on top" just in B4A, not system-wide?

    (running Windows 7 on a desktop and Windows 8 on a laptop)

    Same goes with the Configure Paths Form, should be above the IDEs but should be below other apps.

    Don't know if Erel wants to change this but as a simple and efficient solution check VirtuaWin (or Sysinternals Desktops). Using multiple Desktops and let B4A have its own Ecosystem is a nice way to work. VW is more comfortable, Desktops provides real seperate universes.
