Brings a line or shape control to the front of the z-order.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)
The BringToFront method can be used to position a LineShape, OvalShape, or RectangleShape control in front of all other line and shape controls in a given container. It does not position the control in front of other types of controls in the container; graphics drawn by using line and shape controls always appear behind the other controls.
The following example demonstrates how to use the BringToFront method to change the z-order of shapes at run time. This example requires that you have a RectangleShape control named RectangleShape1 and an OvalShape control named OvalShape1 on a form. For best results, make the controls different colors and make sure that they overlap each other.
