Transparent Window Problem

Max
Hello Everyone,

I have written a VB.NET application that uses a
transparent panel. I display various forms and one
external COM application in my transparent panel (one at
a time). When I resize my panel or change its location,
then theform or application that fills the transparent
panel resizes or moves as needed.

However, I have a problem when a user selects another
application on the taskbar and then switches back to my
application. In this case, my panel is transparent,
showing the previously active application.

My question is . . . how can I activate an already
started application that appears in the taskbar? I don't
want to restart it (it is already running), I just want
to perform the equivalent of "clicking" on the taskbar
tab for the application. Can I do this from VB.NET?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Max
