Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowPos" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal hWndInsertAfter As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal cx As Long, ByVal cy As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
Public Const SWP_NOMOVE = &H2
Public Const SWP_NOSIZE = &H1
Public Const HWND_TOPMOST = -1
Public Const HWND_NOTOPMOST = -2
public Const FLAGS = SWP_NOMOVE Or SWP_NOSIZE

To set the form Form1 to TOPMOST, use the following code:
lRes = SetWindowPos(Form1.hWnd, HWND_TOPMOST, 0, 0, 0, 0, FLAGS) ' lRes <> 0 When Successful

To reset the form Form1 to NON-TOPMOST, use the following code:

lRes = SetWindowPos (Form1.hWnd, HWND_NOTOPMOST, 0, 0, 0, 0, FLAGS) REM lRes <> 0 When Successful
