Change Focus programmatically

Hi,

how can I change the focus programmatically (runtime)? Two VIs are running
at the same time, and I want allow the user to change between those using a
menu bar without stopping the other (because they are synchronized and have
to run all the time - independent of the focus or if both frontpanels are
closed...

Under Windows, you can use the Move Window to Top.vi from the Window Management
VIs section of the 32-bit Windows Utilities (lvwutil32.zip).

You can grab the 32-bit Windows Utilities from the NI Web site:
