My application's main form is hidden. I need to popup another form and bring it to the top or front of all the other desktop windows that are open. I can't use the application handle and need to find my other form's handle. How would I do this? Thanx in advance.

Hello!

Maybe this should help you:

SetWindowPos(Form2.Handle,HWND_TOPMOST,0,0,0,0,SWP_NOACTIVATE or WP_NOMOVE or SWP_NOSIZE);

Hope this helps! :-)
