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)

public void 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, and it does not raise the Paint event.

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