>> Hi All,
>> I am using Mono on OpenSUSE 11.1 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 11
>> I have a kiosk application created with VS2008, compiled in MonoDevelop on
>> OpenSUSE 11.1 and then exported to the machine running SUSE and Mono.
>> All forms are of a fixed size taking the full aspect of the screen. Screen
>> resolution 800x600 and so is all form sizes.
>> I only have 1 issue left... and need community help.
>> The first form (Starting Form) of the program, thus the one that should
>> always be under all other forms... sometimes appears as the top-most form.
>> When it does, that form is inactive (in a frozen state) and the only way
>> to
>> close it is via ALT-F4.  Once it's closed, we can see the form that the
>> user
>> clicked to try to open the other form.
>> There is a need to open forms using ShowDialog() method. Actually i am
>> using, frm.Owner = this; frm.ShowDialog(this); where frm is the child form
>> to open depending on user action (e.g. button press). That way, there can
>> be
>> 10-15 forms open one after another in a hierarchy. but, as all form are
>> displayed using ShowDialog() method, there can be at most one direct child
>> form open at any given time from a parent form. Also, that child form can
>> open another child form too. This is how navigation goes.
>> When the Starting Form on-top stuck issue happens, it occurs randomly when
>> a
>> user clicks and the program opens a form on top of the current form.  It
>> doesn't matter what is on the form loading or the form that it comes from.
>> It is random, the user could be clicking very slowly, one click per minute
>> or 10 clicks per second, it occurs so randomly...
>> Anyone experience this type of behavior and have a
>> solution/work-around/different manner that should be used to open these
>> forms?
>> Looking forward to your replies.
>> Thank you.
