How about this ???

SetForegroundWindow(Me.hWnd) 'API call...find it in the help file...

Maybe try putting it in a Timer's OnTimer() event...

Hess,

put it in your Form_Load, like so

Private Sub Form_Load()
    'sets form to be always on top
    'SetWindowPos hwnd, HWND_TOPMOST, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOMOVE + SWP_NOSIZE
   
End Sub


hope this helps
