i have a vb app runing on win95.
In my app the is a moving picture. However, my app always stops at the place where I move the picture, if another program (say Access)app has focus.  I have to give backthe focus to my app before it continue.

Put a timer on the form, set the interval to 500, and put this inside:
If GetForegroundWindow()=mw.hwnd then me.show
