Hi David,
I tried creating a System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow from the Process.CurrentProcess.MainWindowHandle but that didn't seem to make a difference. Thanks for the suggestion though.

  You may need to specify the parent window in the call to messagebox.show

    Hi guys,
    I've been experimenting with embedding mono in our OSX Cocoa based application as a plug-in system. So far everything is working great except for one teeny weeny little thing:)
    If my C# code calls

    a message box is displayed and my other application windows appear to be in a modal state. The problem is that if I click on any other part of my application the messagebox displays behind the window I just clicked (it does not stay on top.) 

    Is there something that I need to do to keep modal windows like messageboxes to stay on top?
