The current project i am working on runs in the system tray most of the time, but at certain events it shows up some MsgBox's, but unforunately these are always in the background and i sometimes miss them due to this.Is there any way to make the MsgBox come to the front when it pops up?Using VB08 and am fairly inexperienced.

This is the Private Sub OptionsToolStripMenuItem_Click_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Options.Show() Options.BringToFront() End Sub What I am trying to do is when you click on "options" In toolstripMenu. Then the "Options" form comes up in front of the Form1. Where Form1 is the Webbrowser Window Itself. This code doesn't work...
I am developing an application having multiple screens appearing one after another using Vs2008 on Windows Xp(sp3) in vb.net. My requirement is to bring some screens (windows form) in front of the user to take input and some of the forms can work in background (behind other applications) as they are only progress showing forms.
I'm starting a 3rd party application using system.process then initiating some work by sending commands with SendKeys. Towards the end of the process a dialog (YesNo) may appear, the user needs to click depending on their choice.This dialog will always appear behind my application (and any others opened or handled since) Is it possible to give the dialog top focus? (Or at maybe the application which is minimised by mine - assuming this action will keep it minimised while giving the dialog focus)
I've tried to make an options form for my application using a MDI form with a treeview and child forms. I already know how to show child forms, maximize them, etc.However, when I want to bring a selected child form to the front of the others, it doesn't work.
I have an application with a few forms. The main form, and 2 others. When I click a button on the main form, one of the others display "attached". When I move the main form or one of the other forms around the 'attached" forms follow. The problem is that sometimes if you have another application on top of one of the forms, and click the other form, both forms dont come to the front. How can I make that happen? I've already tried things like on bringtofront for all the forms but I also don't want to take focus away and if I do that it ends up in a loop of grabbing focus via activation.
So I have this code to make a "windows taskbar". When you click on an item, it's supposed to bring that window to the front. The only problem is that's not happening. When I use Debug.WriteLine, it has the right window title, except it doesn't come to the front. What's wrong? There is no EntryPointNotFoundException or anything, it just doesn't bring the window to the front.
I have an application of which only 1 instance can run at the same time. Thus in the StartUp event I check for this to be true, and if not close the new instance started. At the same time though I'd like the application to switch automatically to the instance already running. By finding the processid of that instance and using appactivate this is working properly, except when the instance already running is minimized. It then switches to it, but since the instance is minimized, its ide will not show.
I need to use something like sendmessage, but am not able to find how. -Since I already have the processid, could someone tell me how to use code to maximize and bring to the front the ide of another currenly minimized application?
I have been working on a small text editor where you can have more than one file open in the same form. When you click new, it adds a ToolStripSplitButton to a MenuStrip and makes a new form2 as a child.
My question is, when I click the ToolStripSplitButton, I want the MDI child that "owns" that button to come to the top. This is the code for adding the buttons:
Private Sub NewToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles NewToolStripMenuItem.Click Dim f As New Form2()
All I have to show to front is Me.BringToFront() (in form2) but that doesn't do it. I have been looking for a long time now to find the answer. How can I bring it to the front?
I've been having a slight problem with making a Window pop up. When I call it using ShowDialog(), it's supposed to be brought to the front (when in its code, Activated is called.) And yet it does not come to the front right away, it remains behind the Command Prompt. (My actual program.) Here is the code:
Dim newconfig As New Configure 'Configure is the Form object. newconfig.ShowDialog()
I am developing an application having multiple screens appearing one after another using vb.net. My requirement is to bring some screens (windows form) in front of the user to take input and some of the forms can work in background (behind other applications) as they are only progress showing forms.
I tried Me.active(), Me.BringToFront(), Me.Focus(), and also some of the APIs like GetForegroundWindow(),SetForegroundWindow(), ShowWindow() etc, but failed to do so.
I tried another set of instructions Me.TopMost = True Me.Active() Me.TopMost = False
Its works for me but once my form come in front, no other application can appear on top untill the my form is selected manually. Although I tried Me.Select() and Me.Focus() after above mentioned set of instructions but failed.
I know there is an option when you right click a control you can bring it infront of another control and stuff, but....hen ever I draw a line in my vb.net script usingmyGraphics.DrawLine(pen:=myPen, x1:=1, y1:=1, x2:=e.X, y2:=e.Y) want to know how I can make this line appear over a Panel, Label, and other stuff..
What code in VB.net 2010 do I need to set a window to come to the front of the screen. What I am trying to achieve is to display an urgent alert type, its a form, for certain reasons I am not using message box.
Following code does not work: Private Sub frmMessage_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load Me.BringToFront() End Sub
I am working on an excel add-in. Currently I have a couple of forms that grabs info from excel, processes and pastes data back into excel.My problem occurs after my form closes (this leaves excel and one other MDI form still open). I need my excel sheet to come to the front for users to view and edit. My MDI form just stays on top even though I just edited the excel doc. I have tried everything I can think of using:
I am trying to have any only one form type eg Countries, Projects, or Vendors etc. open at the same time. So, if a user has the Country form open and goes to open it again from the menu I would like the applaication to bring the form to the Front of the MDI container. I have tried a number of things like BringToFront, ActivateMdiChild, etc.
This code works on my local machine (Windows 7 Ultimate).When I tried it on WindowsXP,it didn't even open the dialog,instead it gave me an Unhandeled Exception error.
I can't remember the specific details of the error,but I do recall my profesor telling me there could be something wrong with permissions(me being the ONLY user on my machine,and his machine having multiple user accounts).
But what does all that have to do with opening the SaveFileDialog?
Could it be that SaveFileDialog1.AutoUpgradeEnabled = True is causing the problem?
My users need to browse to select a file and then save it to a different location. Here's my code I've got so far - it incorporates the OpenFileDialog to open the file and the SaveFileDialog to save the file. When the code goes into the OpenFileDialog portion, it works great....the initial directory is set to "C:" This is where the user will select the file they want to save to another location.
I have an .net 1.1 framework application I would like to update to 3.0 framework (or at least 2.0), but I've just run into a real problem. The savefile dialog code which works fine in 1.1 does not work in 2.0 and up. Line for line the code is the same (thereis no difference in line numbers at all). I'm baffled.With the exception of throwing an error for the Quicktime 7 control, VS2008 indicated no errors in converting 1.1I open my 1.1 (VS 2003) version and step through line-by-line. Works as advertised.I open my 2.0 (VS 2008) version and step through line-by-line. Appears to be working, dialog opens fine, I enter a filename, code continues; but when complete, there is no file in the folder.I'm wondering if the problem lies in the block of code for the small XML file I'm writing.
