Making VI front panels modal outside of Labview

Highlighted
Hi,
I am calling VIs as Sequence Steps from a custom TestStand GUI (in visual basic). How can I make VIs modal => pop up in front of the GUI and remain frontmost until they are closed?
Using the "VI Properties >> Window Appearance >> Window is Modal" option makes the VI stay frontmost within Labview but in this instance it is still possible to switch focus back to the GUI.
Hopefully someone has a suggestion.

Thanks.

Answering my own question, as after this post I discovered what I was looking for.
Labview "Functions >> TestStand >> TestStand - Start Modal Dialog" included in a VI diagram called from TestStand causes the VI to be modal to the TestStand GUI.
