What do you mean bring a minimize vb program to active?


This code will make your window stay on top of others:

Declare Sub 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 giFlags As Long)

Sub StayOnTop(hWindow As Long, TopMost As Boolean)
    wFlags = &H2 Or &H1 Or &H40 Or &H10
    If TopMost = True Then Placement = -1
    If TopMost = False Then Placement = -2
    SetWindowPos hWindow, Placement, 0, 0, 0, 0, wFlags
End Sub




call     StayOnTop Me.hwnd, True     to make that window stay on top of the others


If you're talking about moving it also, you could do me.move 0,0


If th program's minimized, you can make it normal window state by doing    Me.WindowState = vbNormal


I hope this helps.  Good luck!
