Set focus back to host

Hi, I have a toolbar-add-in which opens a TForm. I select something which is pasted in the current document.

Is it possible to set the focues back to the MS Word then automatically (after the paste-operation)?

Thanks,
Uwe

Hi Uwe,

Does your form show up as a modal? If yes, it is not possible to set focus back to the MS Word until the form is closed.

No, I use .Show to display it.

Hi Uwe,

In this case you can try to use Windows API functions. For example SetActiveWindow(HWND).

Maybe some else may also need it:

h := FindWindow('OpusApp',nil) ;
if h = 0 then
exit ;
SetActiveWindow(H);
SetForegroundWindow(H);

Don't ask me why MS Word is called "OpusApp"...
