Additional Comments

Use the systemWindow property to create a stack that can be used as a systemwide utility, available in all applications.

Value:

The systemWindow property of a stack is true or false. By default, the systemWindow of a newly created stack is set to false.

Comments:

The systemWindow property determines the window's layer. If the systemWindow is true, the window floats above all running applications, no matter which application is active.

A stack whose systemWindow property is true has the same appearance as a palette.

On Mac OS systems, the systemWindow property has no effect.

Note: The setting of this property determines whether the stack'sdecorationsproperty includes "system".

"On Mac OS systems, the systemWindow property has no effect." Au contraire. On my OS X 10.6.6 system, setting this property to "true" allows the window to float above all other applications and windows, creating a "system palette". False turns it back into a normal window.
I have not tested this in a standalone.
