Default Why TopMost make form at The top of all applicatio

Hi Guys,

I have two forms. One is main form from where i am calling a progress bar form. I set progress bar TopMost Property True because i want to show progress bar at top.

I am calling progress bar as independent thread. It show progress bar at the Top of All Applications. But i just want to show the Progress bar only at the top of my application.

Here is my code

   thread= new Thread(new ThreadStart(ShowProgressDialog));
   thread.IsBackground = true;

private void ShowProgressDialog()

             progress = new ProgressBarForm();
             startTime = DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString();
             this.startTimeLbl.Text = startTime;
             ProgressBarForm.startTime ="Start Time: "+ startTime;
   progress.TopMost = true;


I am using .Net 1.1. I tried to set TopMost property of Progress bar before calling ShowDialog(this) but it also does not work.

Any suggession please.

Best regards

Have you tried either not setting TopMost to true, or not using ShowDialog(), just Show().
