I've created a shaped form inside of a dll that is sometimes used by the core
class of the dll to gain user input.

My problem is that even though i tell the form to show modal via ShowDialog(),
the form does not appear on the screen , only in the taskbar where i have to
click to  make it visible. I've tried even telling the form to also bringtofront and
setfocus in its on load event but still i cant get it to show this shaped form
when it starts up.

I've resolved the problem by setting the form to being topmost.

Like that it always appears. Otherwise it is visible but appears behind
other windows that may be open.

I don't think this problem is from your side though,
I suspect this is because the form although being told to display modally , is
being told that by an application that has no interface or forms itself.

The application only calls forms from various dll's. A modal form always
needs a parent for it to be placed "over" , this doesn't have one , so the form is
visible but not on top as it has no parent window.
