[Mono-list] [MonoDevelop] Moving Focus Between Form

Hi Gaita,
  Thanks for you respond.  I had already subscribe to it, yesterday.  I
am running with 1.2.5.  My problem is very straight forward, from a main
windows form, you just simply open up another form.  With two forms
open, I only have control of the second form only.  In order for me to
have the control back to the main windows, I have to close this form.

I have no problem when running this code in native Windows.

The best place would be either the mono list or the mono-winforms list
(if it's a winforms problem you're having). I've cc'd the mono-list
for you, please subscribe to it if haven't done so already.

What version of mono are you running? The latest stable one is 1.2.5,
so you might be stumbling onto a problem that's already been fixed, if
you're running an older version. Also, a small test to replicate your
problem would be helpful.
