Hi All,

My application has a main interface developed by VB6.0. Is it possible to pop up a non-modal dialog under certian conditions? And this non-modal dialog will disappear automatically after 1 minute.

Please advise. Thanks.

Just use a Form, and use a timer to hide it.
Option Explicit
 

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Form2.Show vbModeless

Me.Timer1.Interval = 2000

Me.Timer1.Enabled = True
 

End Sub
 

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()

Form2.Hide

Timer1.Enabled = False
 

End Sub

Open in new window

And -- if you want to force the non-modal dialog to stay "on-top" of your main program window, do what GrahamSkan said but add the name of the main program window to the Show command:

Form2.Show vbModeless, Form1

If the above line of code is being executed from within Form1, you could also use:

Form2.Show vbModeless, Me
