Hi there!

The API-call 'SetWindowPos' can take care of this for you.

This function is declared as follows:

Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowPos" (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

What you do here is send the handle to the form (its hwnd property) to the function and along with the constant HWND_TOPMOST for the hWndInsertAfter parameter.

Const HWND_TOPMOST = -1

The x, y, cx and cy values takes care of positioning and sizing, respectively. wFlags handles flags for positioning and resizing. For instance, the constant:

Const SWP_SHOWWINDOW = &H40

merely shows the window. The constant

Const SWP_NOSIZE = &H1

ignores the values of cx and cy, and keeps the original size of the window.

Enjoy
