    Why does a window opened with ShowDialog set my MSN to "busy"?

    If I turn off "showme as 'BUsy' when i'm running a full-screen program or presentation settings are turned on" in messenger, that seems to fix it. Are modal dialogs secretly full-screen? or do they have some sort of presentation settings?

    Hi Michael,

     The RadWindow is hosted in a transparent big window that occupies the whole desktop. This makes the MSN think that you are running a full-screen application.

    Can you make the transparent window the size of the desktop without making it "full-screen"? this behaviour is very annoying and interferes with other software as well.

    Hi Michael,

     It is not actually full-screen - it is as big as the desktop is, but the MSN "thinks" that this is a full-screen window. We will think about a solution of this problem, but currently there is no known work-around.
