Which C/C++ libs give access to the Active Frame outside of Cascades?

Which C/C++  native libraries give access to the Active Frame outside of Cascades?

 

Inside Cascades I would use ScreenCover but that class is connected to the Cascades Application object. As a  QT app my code only have the QApplication object available.

Re: Which C/C++ libs give access to the Active Frame outside of Cascades?

There are a whole slew of "window cover" related functions in navigator.h, and I suspect what you'd need to use is among them.

They appear grossly underdocumented, however, so I'm not sure how far you'll get with it unless there's a sample. See for example: https://developer.blackberry.com/native/reference/bb10/com.qnx.doc.bps.lib_ref/com.qnx.doc.bps.lib_r...
