Control.BringToFront Method

Brings the control to the front of the z-order.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub BringToFront
'Usage
Dim instance As Control

instance.BringToFront
public void BringToFront ()
public function BringToFront ()

The control is moved to the front of the z-order. If the control is a child of another control, the child control is moved to the front of the z-order. BringToFront does not make a control a top-level control.

The following code example ensures that a Label is visible by calling its BringToFront method. This example requires that you have a Form with a Panel named panel1, and a Label named label1.

Private Sub MakeLabelVisible()
   ' If the panel contains label1, bring it 
   ' to the front to make sure it is visible. 
   If panel1.Contains(label1) Then
      label1.BringToFront()
   End If
End Sub

private void MakeLabelVisible()
{
    /* If the panel contains label1, bring it 
       to the front to make sure it is visible. 
     */
    if (panel1.Contains(label1)) {
        label1.BringToFront();
    }
} //MakeLabelVisible
