Brings CWnd to the top of a stack of overlapping windows.

void BringWindowToTop( );

In addition, BringWindowToTop activates pop-up, top-level, and MDI child windows. The BringWindowToTop member function should be used to uncover any window that is partially or completely obscured by any overlapping windows.

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

// Moves MDI child windows to the top when a mouse passes 
// over it. CMdiView is derived from CView. 
void CMdiView::OnMouseMove(UINT nFlags, CPoint point)
