See SetForegroundWindow API in MSDN.
Note the differences on various Windows platforms.

tomerlei,

Here's slightly modyfied version of Yorai Aminov's code:


function ForceForegroundWindow(Const hWnd: THandle): Boolean;
var hCurWnd: THandle;
begin
    Result := False;
    if not isWindow(hWnd) then Exit;
    hCurWnd := GetForegroundWindow;
    if (hCurWnd=hWnd) then begin
        Result := True;
        Exit;
    end;
    if (GetWindowLong( hWnd, GWL_STYLE ) and WS_MINIMIZE)<>0 then ShowWindow(hWnd, SW_SHOWNOACTIVATE);
    AttachThreadInput(GetWindowThreadProcessId(hCurWnd, nil),GetCurrentThreadId,True);
    Application.ProcessMessages; // !!!
    SetForegroundWindow(hWnd);
    AttachThreadInput(    GetWindowThreadProcessId(hCurWnd, nil),GetCurrentThreadId, False);
    Result := GetForegroundWindow=hWnd;
end;




DEMO:
-------
(place one Button on the form and start Notepad)


procedure TForm1.Button11Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ForceForegroundWindow(FindWindow('Notepad',nil));
end;
