Hi guys,

I have two forms, one of which is called by the button. Once the button is pressed, the first form becomes disabled. Then if I switch to a different application (Alt + TAB or in task bar), and then come back to my application, the disabled form comes on top of the enabled. I think it's a little bit confusing for the users. What can I do to avoid this?
