I am running Arcgis 10, coding in VB.Net with VS 2008.  One form that I try to show always comes to the front then the Arcmap window appears above it.  The Arcmap window disappears during processing time.  The form is called with Show().  ShowDialog() brings the form to the front but we need to give users access to the Arcmap window while the form is open.  I've tried the BringToFront() function but to no avail.  Any help will be appreciated.
