If I have a main form in an application, and then a button on that main form that opens up a sub form on top of the Main form.

How can I get the handle of the subform (the top level form)?

regards
Myles

use GetTopWindow

From the windows SDK help:

"The GetTopWindow function examines the Z order of the child windows associated with the specified parent window and retrieves the handle of the child window at the top of the Z order."
