Bring Powershell-Console to front from WinForms

Hope that helps to @iRon's answer, i was able to figure it out, how i want it. For anyone curious, the problem is, you only can get the consoles MainwindowHandle as long as ShowDialog wasn't called. So i save the console Handle in a variable and i use the Form_Shown event to get the Form WindowHandle, since Form_Load still returns the Console Handle.
$sig = '
[DllImport("user32.dll")] public static extern bool ShowWindowAsync(IntPtr hWnd, int nCmdShow);
[DllImport("user32.dll")] public static extern int SetForegroundWindow(IntPtr hwnd);'
$type = Add-Type -MemberDefinition $sig -Name WindowAPI -PassThru
[IntPtr]$handleConsole = (Get-Process -Id $pid).MainWindowHandle
[void]$type::ShowWindowAsync($handleConsole, 4);[void]$type::SetForegroundWindow($handleConsole)

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Windows.Forms

$Form                            = New-Object system.Windows.Forms.Form
$Form.ClientSize                 = '446,266'
$Form.text                       = "Form"
$Form.TopMost                    = $false

 $global:handleForm = (Get-Process -Id $pid).MainWindowHandle

$Button1                         = New-Object system.Windows.Forms.Button
$Button1.text                    = "Clone ad-USer"
$Button1.width                   = 60
$Button1.height                  = 30
$Button1.location                = New-Object System.Drawing.Point(75,29)
$Button1.Font                    = 'Microsoft Sans Serif,10'

    [void]$type::ShowWindowAsync($handleConsole, 4);[void]$type::SetForegroundWindow($handleConsole)
    Read-Host -Prompt "Please Enter a Value"
    [void]$type::ShowWindowAsync($global:handleForm, 4);[void]$type::SetForegroundWindow($global:handleForm)

bring a console window to front in c#

I think the issue was by ths following , It's hacky, it's horrible, but it works for me (thanks, pinvoke.net!):
using System;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Threading;

public class Test 

    [return: MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.Bool)]
    static extern bool SetForegroundWindow(IntPtr hWnd);

    [DllImport("user32.dll", EntryPoint="FindWindow", SetLastError = true)]
    static extern IntPtr FindWindowByCaption(IntPtr zeroOnly, string lpWindowName);

    public static void Main()
        string originalTitle = Console.Title;
        string uniqueTitle = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
        Console.Title = uniqueTitle;
        IntPtr handle = FindWindowByCaption(IntPtr.Zero, uniqueTitle);

        if (handle == IntPtr.Zero)
            Console.WriteLine("Oops, cant find main window.");
        Console.Title = originalTitle;

        while (true)

Bring Winforms control to front

hope this fix your issue Yeah, there's another way. The Controls.SetChildIndex() also changes Z-order. The one with index 0 is the one on top. Doesn't buy you anything though, BringToFront() uses this method.
Your SendLabelsToBack() method as given cannot work, it will also send the label to added to the back. But your next statement fixes that again.

Winforms: bring 2 obscured forms to front

Tag : chash , By : Crilledk

I hope this helps . When you create form2, just pass this as a parameter to Show() to signify that form1 is the owner. With an owner link, the forms will always be raised together (at least in my experience -- I don't have a specification to back me up on this).
public Form1()
    form2 = new Form2();
    form2.Show(this);     //pass 'this' as argument to Show() to link them
    form2.Resize += new EventHandler(a_Resize);

winforms designer hand code bring to front

I wish did fix the issue. The order in which controls are added to their parent determines the initial Z-order. The control added first will be in front of controls added later:

C++ bring console window to the front

hope this fix your issue In most cases you can use SetForegroundWindow as long as the window is properly restored. Sometimes the system may refuse the request (see documentation) There is usually a good reason for it and you should not try to override the system. If SetForegroundWindow failed then you still have the backup option where you get that blinking button in the task bar to alert the user.
void show(HWND hwnd)
    GetWindowPlacement(hwnd, &place);
        ShowWindow(hwnd, SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED);
        ShowWindow(hwnd, SW_RESTORE);
        ShowWindow(hwnd, SW_NORMAL);
    SetWindowPos(0, HWND_TOP, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_SHOWWINDOW | SWP_NOSIZE | SWP_NOMOVE);

int main()
    HWND hwnd = GetConsoleWindow();
    ShowWindow(hwnd, SW_SHOWMINIMIZED);
    //Test: manually click another window, to bring that other window on top

    //this window should restore itself
    return 0;
