    Always On Top??

    I am using VB6. In my project I have a main form that calls a map form from a menu button. When the map form shows it appears on top of all other forms as you would expect...however, it seems to have the "always on top" functionality! In the form_load of the map form I have this:

    Private Sub Form_Load()
    mapTrack.NewMap geoMapEurope
    bLiveTrack = False
    gbMapShow = True
    End Sub

    However, when I do this (comment out the newmap line):

    Private Sub Form_Load()
    'mapTrack.NewMap geoMapEurope
    bLiveTrack = False
    gbMapShow = True
    End Sub

    The project seems ok (no "on top").

    Anyone any ideas?

    Regards,
    Milo

    I have solved this by putting
    SetWindowPos Me.hwnd, HWND_NOTTOPMOST, 0, 0, 0, 0, _
    SWP_NOACTIVATE Or SWP_SHOWWINDOW Or SWP_NOMOVE Or SWP_NOSIZE

    at the end of form_load. I have done a search for SetWindowPos throughout my whole project and there is nothing that sets the map form to the front?!!? I would still be interested to see if anyone has any comments on this though.
