The sample I've uploaded has a form Parent that launches one Child. The Child's parent is set to Parent. Clicking the Child button triggers a MessageBox.Show.

There's a thread that moves Parent to back and then to front at 2 second intervals. This works fine so long as there is no MessageBox. If you display a message box (by clicking the button on Child), it goes to back and stays there.

How can I make Parent (and Child) come and go as desired if there's a message box? I'm using C# 4.0
