Choose Font and Choose Color Dialogs - error when left open

I am using API functions to Choose a font and color using the below:-

Private Declare Function ChooseFont Lib "comdlg32.dll" Alias "ChooseFontA" _
(pChoosefont As FONTSTRUC) As Long
Private Declare Function ChooseColor Lib "comdlg32.dll" Alias "ChooseColorA" ( _
pChoosecolor As CHOOSECOLORSTRUCTURE) As Long

All works fine - only issue is that if a user leaves the font selector open they can close the form that opened the dialog and this creates an error. In some cases if they click on something else on the screen the font selector can hide behind other forms.

Is there a way to open the font (and color) selector as a dialog or in some way lock the form until it is closed or alternatively close the font selector when the form is closed?.

Appreciate any ideas
