Putting a Window infront of a Full Screen Application

hello, I was curious if someone here could help... I basically want to put
a transparent window infront of a fullscreen application and keep drawing
text onto the transparent window (basically the transparent window wont
affect the fullscreen application in anyway, just use to display

The fullscreen application is an external program. I've tried using the
"setTopMost" but it only puting the window I created above all the other
windows on my desktop (I think once I alt-tab to the fullscreen application
that the fullscreen application gets set to "topmost" aswell and my topmost
window wont go above an active topmost window). Is there a way to make a
"topmost topmost" window? Any help would be greatly appresated (some kinda
C# web pages which deal with this (I looked but coudln't find any), or some
same code, or a same program, anything would be great, thanks).
