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

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 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
