I think you can make your other forms Forms TopMost which might give you the desired effect.

Another alternative might be to use the Windows API but lets see if TopMost is what you want.

A third option will be to control it yourself by catching the OnFocus event and then actually making the other forms come back to the top.

Topmost has one annoying manner that it always remains on topmost of the desktop. Can topmost be set only till the application level.
