I have 2 VB6 application running nr1 and nr2.
Is it possible to Always have application nr2  on top of application nr1.
Even if I am working in nr1 I like to have nr2 on top (In fore ground).
I like to have nr2 on  top until I minimize it.

Put the code below in a module:

Private Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal hWndInsertAfter As Long, ByVal X As Long, Y, ByVal cx As Long, ByVal cy As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
Private Const HWND_TOPMOST = -1
Private Const HWND_NOTOPMOST = -2
Private Const SWP_NOMOVE = &H2
Private Const SWP_NOSIZE = &H1
Private Const TOPMOST_FLAGS = SWP_NOMOVE Or SWP_NOSIZE

Public Sub MakeTopMostWindow(hwnd As Long)
   
    SetWindowPos hwnd, HWND_TOPMOST, 0, 0, 0, 0, TOPMOST_FLAGS

End Sub

---------
Call in the form load of the form you want on top:

MakeTopMostWindow Me.hwnd
