MS Sidebar team, if it's possible it would be good to be able to lock the flyout window so it doesn't close when you click outside, several users ask me for this option. This is very usefull on my gadget because it displays a video on the flyout and when you want to do something else the video closes and you have to restart it.
If it's not possible please send me an alternative solution, thanks.

That's currently not possible. See this thread.

Alternatives would be to grow/shrink your gadget yourself (like Jonathan Abbot's media player gadget does) or to provide a different experience when undocked vs. docked (like I did with my Soapbox on MSN Video Search gadget).
