In case it wasn't obvious from my code, you set a form on top by adding the code to the form and then you can use the code "TopMost = True" from within the form or "TheNameOfTheForm.TopMost = True" from anywhere else.

I'm sorry VBmaster, but when I put in your code I recived a compile error that stated that only comments may follow an end sub.  If I incorectly placed the code, please tell me so I can give you the points you desive.

In case you want to use the property-solution.. Make sure you go to the Declarations part of the form (top item in first combobox) before you add the code, it will remove that little error.
