Window Order

 I have an application that can have multiple top level windows (owned by the desktop).  I am trying to control the order of these windows by using CWnd::SetOwner().  The problem is when I call SetOwner the owner is not getting changed.  I am verifying this by using spy.  

  Any ideas why this call would be failing?

Thanks

If you want to change the order, you need to use SetWindowPos(). One of the parameters indicate what window to put this window after in terms of Z-order.
