My program uses Word via OLE. And I have made a toolbar-window that is always on top. I control Word from this toolbar.
The thing is when I activate my toolbar my main window pop's up in front of Word, this is very annoying. Does anyone have a solution?
Making the toolbar as a standalone is however not a solution.

You need to attach an event to application.onactivate. In that handler, check screen.activeform for the toolbar form. If this is true, execute ShowWindow(Application.MainForm.Handle, SW_HIDE)  else execute the same but with SW_SHOW);

procedure AppActivate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if(Screen.ActiveForm = frmtoolbar) then
    ShowWindow(Application.MainForm.Handle, SW_HIDE)
  else
    ShowWindow(Application.MainForm.Handle, SW_SHOW);
end;

This will make the window go away. You can bring it back with SW_SHOW at the time of your convenience.
Hope this helps.
