Running application in IDE - can't switch back to application after switching to another window

When I'm running a program in the IDE, I see my program run. My programs typically take quite a while to run. When I switch to another application - e.g. Word to develop my report while waiting for the analysis results - when I try to swicth back to the application to see how it's doing, I can't view it. When the program finishes, it comes back into view again. Is this normal Delphi behavior or am I doing something wrong?

This is normal.
somewhere in a lengthy loop

Thanks for solution. I put this command in the code so that it is executed every 1000 iterations and now I can switch away from the program window to do other work and then switch back whenever I want to to check on how my program run is doing. Note that Forms needs to be added to Uses.
