Hi all,

I have a small app in .net 2008, running (in systray), in many computers in my company, that has to alert the user a few times during the day's work, and sometimes ask for their input.

The problem is, when, i open a form (show or showdialog), it doesn't popup, this because the user is working in other office app's, and the forms stays behind, and most of the times the users don't even pay attention.

Is there a way to put a form in popup, jumping in front of any app that may be open or maybe create a window info, like the one outlook does when alerting of an incoming mail?

Thanks for any help
