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.
