Hi mate it's Chaz again :))

Do u remember when i asked you how to make always on top??

Cool, the problem i have is after sending my document to the fax it doesn't make the form lose focus....ummmm here's the code to help me explain what i mean:

Dim ir As Long
        ir = SetTopMostWindow(Form1.hwnd, True)

On Error GoTo errorhandler
   Dim x As Printer
       For Each x In Printers
           If x.DeviceName = "ElectraSoft Print to Fax" Then
               Set Printer = x
               Exit For
           End If
       Next
       formprint.SendToPrinter Form1, Landscape
   Printer.EndDoc
   Exit Sub 'THIS LINE WAS MISSING IN YOUR CODE
Dim pq As Long
         pq = SetTopMostWindow(Form1.hwnd, False)
         Form2.SetFocus
errorhandler:
   MsgBox "There was an error sending the fax!", vbCritical, "Error!"

I hope this helps to eplain what i mean....

Hey Chaz!

The problem is that the "SetTopMostWindow...False" statement is not executing because you put it after the "Exit Sub" statement...

It should look like this:

    Dim ir As Long
    Dim pq As Long
    ir = SetTopMostWindow(Form1.hwnd, True)

    On Error GoTo errorhandler
    Dim x As Printer
    For Each x In Printers
        If x.DeviceName = "ElectraSoft Print to Fax" Then
            Set Printer = x
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
    formprint.SendToPrinter Form1, Landscape
    Printer.EndDoc
    pq = SetTopMostWindow(Form1.hwnd, False)
    Form2.SetFocus
    Exit Sub 'THIS LINE WAS MISSING IN YOUR CODE
   
errorhandler:
   MsgBox "There was an error sending the fax!", vbCritical, "Error!"



Cheers!
