Hi

In our application we are using OOM (Outlook object model) to let the user choose recipients for email from his Outlook address book. Calling GetSelectNamesDialog() method show the contact list from Outlook.

The problem is that window may appears under the main window of our application. The method call doesn't give handle or any means to bring it to front.

How can we bring this windows in front of our application's main window.

We code in c# framework 2.0.

If you need more information, please ask.

Thanks!

There is no property on the dialog to put it on top or make it modal?
Here is the exact problem with a potential solution, but it is generic.
