Non Modal Forms on Top of Modal One's

P: n/a
I wonder if there's any way around this.

I open a window as a modal form, but I would like to have pop up
message boxes appearing on top of this that are non modal (so the user
can close whichever of the pop ups they like). If I make the parent
window non modal this works fine. I simply set the TopMost property
for each pop up so that is stays on top of the parent. However as soon
as I make the parent window modal (which is absolutely essential in my
project) although the pop up windows appear you can no longer interact
with them.

Is there any way of getting this to work. I hoped that setting parents
and owners would have an affect but so far nothing...
