graphical menu overlays using c# ?

P: n/a
I'm wondering if it's possible using C# to create graphical menu overlays
over whatever the PC is doing whether it be windowed mode or full screen mode.

So that means displaying graphics on top of anything that might be displayed
in windows even if you're playing a game.

I know this is possible using C++ but is there any support for this in C#?
Maybe a bunch of wrapper classes or an entirely separate API ?

Have you thought about access directx through C#? That should be able
to do what you want. There are examples about using directx & .net around.
