Hi Kevin,

Fwiw, you could try putting the “moveable box” and its contents on a 
separate form, which you can call from the main form. You can then move 
it at will, or even close it (make sure there’s a button to open it again)

If the main form fills the whole screen, then setting focus on the main 
form will make the smaller form seem to disappear – it’s actually just 
gone behind the main form.. You need to have appropriate code on the 
main form to ‘bring the smaller form back’ when you need it.
