Problem with Print Info box....!

Hi,
  When printing, I have a pop up print info box and shows the progress and also a CANCEL button to cancel printing.
Code :
     frmPrint.show
     ' print coding
     unload frmprint  
My problem is that the frmprint shows up like it is suspended and it doesn't respond to any input/clicks until it is unloaded. This might be because the main form is geting the focus since the printing code loop is executing.
So I showed frmPrint as vbmodal as it pops up clearly and accepts all clicks ( eg. cancel) BUT it doesn't close down at all by itself. I believe this is becasue control is tranferred to the frmPrint (vbmodal  and the code doesn't resume back to the main form until the vbmodal form is closed. How do I solve this?
I tried Winapi's like Bringwindowtotop but there is no diff.

Thanks!! ( and sorry, lack of points )

Try WINAPI32 to get the frmPrint.show active first, then get the button focus. I need WINAPI32 somthing like GetActiveWindows or CurrentWindows function (Look for VB Help for detail) to get active window.
