    I am using System.Windows.Forms and New-Object to have a pop up GUI from my PowerShell script. The pop up often appears behind the PowerShell ISE window. It is hidden this way. Is there a trick to make it always come to the front? I was thinking of using SendKeys. But I want other users to use it. There is no telling where they might click. I might be able to do something with SendKeys. But I think someone else has encountered this problem before.

    Have you tried setting the TopMost property to true?
