Hi experts,

I have form, which I want to keep on top of my application for which I have written an API. But this shows the form on top of other applications too. I don't want it to be in that way. It should be on top of only a particular application in VB.

Can anyone help me in this regard...

If Form2 is the form you always want to be on top then use this syntax:

Form2.Show vbModeless, Form1

Now Form2 will stay on on top of Form1 but not on top of other applications.

You could change topmost flag when your app loses focus:
