Hi

I open a form through the Excel double click in my Excel VB.net add-in, but it keeps
jumping behind Excel. My code follows. What can I do to prevent this?

    Private Sub Application_SheetBeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Range, ByRef Cancel As Boolean) Handles Application.SheetBeforeDoubleClick
        Try
            If Globals.Ribbons.Ribbon1.ToggleButton_OpenElementPanes.Checked = True Then

                Dim Form_DoubleClickMenu As New frmDoubleClickMenu
                Form_DoubleClickMenu.Show()
                Form_DoubleClickMenu.BringToFront()
            End If
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub
