Block over the content of a slide - Beamer

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but here I go :)
I'm preparing a presentation using Beamer, and I'd like to place a "block" box over the content of a slide.

For example, consider this two-column slide frame:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
    \begin{frame}{Frame title}
                    \item[-] First item
                    \item[-] Second item
                     This is the block that I want to
                     be over everything when I hit <Enter>! :)


I want to put the "Hello! block" on the middle of the slide, over the text and the image. Is there a way to do that, like specifying a (x,y) position?

I googled this "problem", but I couldn't find any solution. Apparently, I'm the first one who wants to do that :D

I appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

What do you mean by a block??? Do you want to add a simple itemize square figure, that you can define in a list environment??? Otherwise, you will have to be more precise on your request, because I don't understand.

In Beamer, a "block" is a framed text with a title.

Here is an example (slide 50):

I just want this framed text to cover the text/figures/lists/whatever the slide has when I forward one slide.
You know, I just want to emphasize something in my presentation, and I think this would be the best way.

Thanks for your reply ;)
