VB6 Forms

Hi All!

   I'm programming VB6 on Win 7.  I was wondering how when a form is brought up that forms underneath are not able to be brought back into focus.  I thought there was a configuration for that.  I tried using a MDI but that doesn't seem to make a difference.

Thanks - Zack

Show your form as "modal" like this:

    someFrm.Show 1

This will prevent access to the other forms until that form is dismissed.
