Suppose the form you want to show up is called FORM1.

In the OnResize event of this form, put FORM1.ACTIVATE;

I think this should do it.

I sent you some suggestions........You could also try this.....

public
  Procedure ActiveApp(Sender : TObject);
{...}
In OnCreate() enter this code...
Application.OnActivate := ActiveApp;
//The code for the AcitveApp() procedure...
procedure TForm1.ActiveApp(Sender : TObject);
begin
  if Visible then
    Hide
  else
  begin
    if not(GetForegroundWindow = Handle) then
      SetForegroundWindow(Handle);
  end;
end;

Try this if the suggestions I gave you don't work....
