"Twebbrowser" problem when using "navigate"

Hi

My application uses Twebbrowser to display HTML-files
in an explorerwindow. The application openens a new window for every link. Here is an example:

        flag := navOpenInNewWindow;
        browser.Navigate(link,flag);

This works great... but:

Problem:
When running the application on win2000 or XP the
window is created behind my applicationwindow. In most situations you can´t se that explorer is opened....

Is there any way that I can force the new window on top?

No..
Mainwindow´s formstyle is: fsNormal

In win98 or winNT the window allways popup in front
of my application but not under win2000.

What about this:

enumerate all ExplorerWindows (class: IEFrame) and put their handles in a stringlist.

then do your code to open the new one

  flag := navOpenInNewWindow;
  browser.Navigate(link,flag);

now enumerate the Windows again and check wich window is NOT in the list. This is your new one. Take the handle and use SetForegroundWindow(handle) to bring it on top of all windows.

...just from the top of my head

Have you tried placing an application.processmessages before opening the browser window?

There is a trick with XP in that if menus are running, modal dialogs can sometimes not be brought to the front.
