Making my application appear TopMost

I am not sure how to make sure that the window in my application shows up on top of any other window or application that is running at the time.

What is the best way to do this?

Hi lgropper,

you could use the TopMost property but the problem is it will be overlapped when any other aplication is using TopMost also, there is a solution posted using a timer and SetWindowPos to achieve a window that seems like its on top all of the time

hope this helps a bit

I had pretty much exactly the same thing, but it was from an example for VB6 and I obviously made an error in rewriting it for VB.net.  Thanks a lot!
