Which api's should I use to bring my dialog window which is behind other windows to the front?

Aiming for windows 95 compatibility.

Thanks in advance

If the window is not already shown you will have to call ShowWindow:
http://msdn.microsof....asp?frame=true

If it is already shown and you just want to bring it to the front, you can either use SetForegroundWindow:
http://msdn.microsof....asp?frame=true

or BringWindowToTop:
http://msdn.microsof....asp?frame=true

or there are probably more ways to do it, depending on what exactly you want to happen. All of these functions are compatible with Windows 95. :tazz:

The window is initially hidden. Something triggers the ShowWindow funtion and the window becomes visible behind other windows. I tried bot of them including sending custom messages to the dialog box. Doesnot work.
