Mac “Large Type” Function

Dear LazyWeb,
I am looking for sample code that demonstrates how to achieve equivalent functionality of the Addresss Book “Large Type” option.
I have successfully created a transparent NSWindow into which I can place by view, but I am not sure how to put that window on “top” of the screen rather than just on top of my application. Do I need to use something other than Cocoa to achieve this?


Update 11/10/2006 For the sake of Google and posterity, the answers can be found in the Round Transparent Window example on Apple’s Developer site. I had figured most of it out myself – the key item is [iconWindow setLevel:NSStatusWindowLevel]; in order to have the window appear on top of everything else.
