I keep running into problems where a form will pop up and end up behind my detailed map, thus freezing the program while it waits for me to make a decision on a form I cannot see or access. any help?

In NetPlay, typically the solution is to bring up another form (e.g., Weather, or Pools). Closing the new form usually gives you access to the other form.

In Solitaire, it depends on what form is being hidden and which form is covering it. Another factor is how big is your monitor. If you have multiple monitors, it depends on which one holds the Main Form.

Given what you described, making the Detailed Map slightly smaller may be all that is necessary. Try leaving a dozen pixels of space at the top and left of the Detailed Map.

As is implied by the above - more information on when the problem occurs will help us give you a better solution.

my solution was to just leave some space on my monitor. I would have liked to use the detailed map full screen on my main monitor. this workaround is fine for now though. Thank you!
