Hello,

I have a vb.net 2008 windows app. Now I am using shell command to call the calculator. But I want that this calculator should open as modal window i.e. it should remain on the top unless user closes it. Is this possible?

Regards,
MI

You can use both:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("calc")

or

Shell("calc.exe")

and the calculator will stay open until user closes it. It will not stay on top, like a pinned window, but it will stay open as a modal window.
