    I don't know how to detect if my app is in running in the background. And if it's possible to be the active window.

    Any idea?

    Thanks in advance.

    When your application is in the background the visible property of all controls will return false. So you can check the visible control of a control that should be visible and if it's false then your application is running in the background.
    Calling Form.Show will activate your application.

    Thank you I didn't know it.

    If for example, I'm using Tomtom and my gps apps together. With just the can visualize my app.

    I was trying with Form.BringToFront unsuccessfully.

    Thank you very much!
