    Cool [VB6] Force Foreground Window Demo

    The attached project demonstrates how to utilize various APIs to force a window to the foreground. Keep in mind though, that these techniques would probably annoy your users if your window forcibly stealed the focus from whatever they're currently doing.

    Re: [VB6] Force Foreground Window Demo

    If that is not a very long piece of code, can you post it please?

    Meanwhile, as I have said I have the main screen flashing and within the loop that does that I'd like to explore the idea of adding and removing a 'dummy' icon as a possible solution.
    Thanks all!

    Works fine. Also in 'Flashing icon in taskbar' thread. In my case, I wanted my warning window to steal the focus. Thanks Bonnie
    Thanks all!
