Task Manager Switch-To

I have a VB6 program that normally runs "invisibly" without a form so it doesn't show on the taskbar.
It does show in the task manager and when the user clicks on the process in the task manager I'd like the application to detect that.  Is that possible? I'll gladly give more points to show appreciation for a working answer.  

Thanks!

Why not just remove the app from teh task manager instead?

App.TaskVisible = False

Hi RichW, I really do want the application to be in the task manager. The process is normally unobtrusive but I would like to display a "console" in the event of a "switch-to".  There should be someway to detect this, don't you think?
