    Maybe one small mod to make it drag without alt-tabbing would be nice.
    Again, nice.
    Was to lazy to make it work exactly as you asked...hoping this is good 'nuff...
    you now double click to switch, and can still drag it around without it switching...if this isn't what you wanted i'll take some time later and fix it so it works right =P

    For those who use Girder, you can setup one of the button on the remote to do this. It is under OS tab called task switcher

    Vorex = Legend

    Vorex - you're a bloody legend.
    I tried it and it works like a charm
    EXACTLY what i was looking for.

    Hey do you know if there is any way to turn it into a semi-transparent button.

    THANKS!!

    I may be missing something really obvious here but how can I make it appear back in the same placed I dragged it to when the app is restarted??
    It works really well, but it always pops back up in the top left then needs dragging elsewhere.

    edit.. oops forgot to mention, I've been using the 2nd release as I wanted a single button press to switch apps, perhaps make it an option for single or double click??

    I'll try to do atleast the keeping track of it's last position, as for the single click thing, it's more of a PITA then anything, i'd rather it be a single click, but tis a pain...

    Yea, a ini file with x and y location I guess is needed.
    Writes to file when exiting and reads when opened?

    That would be greatly apreciated thank you.

    I did have a look at the source you posted but it has been a looong time since I did any kind of programing and it went so far over my head the light fittings swayed
