BringWindowToTop function

Brings the specified window to the top of the Z order. If the window is a top-level window, it is activated. If the window is a child window, the top-level parent window associated with the child window is activated.

Syntax


BOOL WINAPI BringWindowToTop(
  _In_  HWND hWnd
);

Parameters

hWnd [in]

Type: HWND

A handle to the window to bring to the top of the Z order.

Return value

Type:

Type: BOOL

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

Use the BringWindowToTop function to uncover any window that is partially or completely obscured by other windows.

Calling this function is similar to calling the SetWindowPos function to change a window's position in the Z order. BringWindowToTop does not make a window a top-level window.
