I have a main form from which a user can open a help form (non modal), which obviously contains the documentation. The user must be able to keep this form open while going through the rest of the application.

From the main form other forms will be opened, which all be modal forms. When other forms are open, the help form cannot be accessed, because those other forms are modal. The help form can only be accesses when, besides the help form, only the main form is open (owner of help form).

Is it possible to make the help form always accessible, no matter what sub forms are open (as described above)?

One solution I can think of is to make a separate project for only the help form, so that it can be started as a separate process, but if possible I want to avoid this. I like to keep the help form in the main application.

Is it possible what I want?
