Is another window in YOUR application currently focused?  If yes, then you can simply use BringToFront():

    yourFormReference.BringToFront()

If another application is currently focused then you may or may not need to resort to APIs as in the previous post.  It really depends on the Windows version and whether they have it set to prevent other applications from stealing focus.
