I'm calling a form in a DLL in which I want teh user to actually close before they can continue work in the forms in the EXE - sort of like showmodal. I don't want the user to be able to either 1) press Alt+Tab or 2) click the exe form in the TaskBar to switch back to the application while the DLL form is still open. I also DO NOT want to hide the exe form from the screen, just from the tasklist & taskbar. I will also need to restore the taskbar icon & tasklist entries of the exe after the DLL form is closed. I've tried a few differnt API calls that I got from a newsgroup, but none of them worked. If you provide an API call, please add the correct syntax.
