Put on Top
I am writing some code in Excel VBA
My problem is that messages I give the user do not alwaws appear "On Top" and can be obscured by other windows which appear.
How do I force my Dialog Boxes to be on top ?

Re: Put on Top
Gee, an example of your code might be helpful.
But one trick that I've employeed is an API call to GetActiveWindow before displaying the next form or message dialog. This function seems to not only return the long handle of the activewindow, but also sets the current application window to the Windows system recognized activewindow (giving it focus to boot). Don't know if that's the exact technical explanation, but it works.
I've used this in situations where setting a form's StartupPosition property doesn't work as desired no matter which option I pick.Kevin <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3tuserpics/Kevin_sig.gif alt="Keep the change, ya filthy animal...">
