I have an application in which one form creates an instance of another form and makes the 2nd instance a child of the first. What I am catching is that in case someone tries to close the first form while an instance of the second form is open, a messagebox pops up alerting of this and cancels the form close giving the user a chance to close the 2nd form themselves. My problem is that when the messagebox alerts the user, I would like to bring the 2nd form to the front of the screen for user interaction. I cannot seem to get the 2nd window to show up when it has been minimized. How can I get a window that is minimized to show up as the active form??????
