oh.. oh.oh.oh!!! this is not a flaw in your thought process. this is what I 
was talking about the other day, fsStayOnTop doesn't do squat.. I was basing 
my tests on a system with my code for using popup, which caused problems in 
your code, so I switched back in the patch last night. Arrgh one fix causes 
another issue.. I have got to figure out why popup forms don't recive 
onleave code, or how to make a dialog form..stay on top!!!!
