Showing and hiding a user form
I have a form, which I can show and hide using userform1.show and userform1.hide.

The problem is that userform1.show causes the user form to take focus -- so that, for example, I can no longer alt-tab between open document windows or use any keyboard shortcuts.

I thought I could do this by userform1.visible = true but this gives a runtime error "function or interface marked as restricted".

So, any suggestions for displaying a form without it taking focus -- or of making it hand focus back to the document immediately afterwards.

I had the same problem yesterday.
I don't have a solution, but a workaround.
I inserted

Application.AppWindow.WindowState = cdrWindowMaximized

into my source code to get the focus back to CorelDraw.
This is neither nice nor fast.

I hope that someone comes up with a better solution!

Thanks ... that will do for the moment.

Interesting question... So I googled it and found this really simple solution - just add


AppActivate "CorelDRAW"
at the end of your form show code.
