hi,

  u can use win api for that purpose, u have to write following code in small form.



Private Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal hwndInsertAfter As Long, ByVal X As Long, ByVal Y As Long, ByVal cx As Long, ByVal cy As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
Private Const HWND_TOPMOST = -1
Private Const SWP_NOSIZE = &H1
Private Const HWND_TOP = 0


'Private Sub Command1_Click()
'Form2.Show
'End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

    SetWindowPos Me.hwnd, HWND_TOPMOST, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOSIZE

End Sub

Hi,

The code given by surajdeo will make the window go on top of all windows. If you just want the window to always be on top of your big window, use this:

Private Declare Function SetWindowLong& Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowLongA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As Long)
Private Const GWL_HWNDPARENT = (-8)

Private Sub Form_Load()
SetWindowLong(SmallForm.Hwnd, GWL_HWNDPARENT, BigForm.Hwnd)
End Sub

Not at all, if you do that, you cannot access underlying form until modal is closed.
If it is a toolbar, you have to get access to both forms.
