    NOTE: An equivalent Win32 API function for SetSysModalWindow does not exist. System modal windows contradict the concept of multitasking and thus are not implemented in Win32.
    Yeah thanks...so how do I make a form system-modal?

    You can't...think of all the evil possibilities...you could try just restricting mouse movements and stuff like that.

    you're not allowed dude!!!

    It's against the rules of multitasking!!!

    You could fudge it maybe by making a full screen form and disable all keystrokes

    Chris: screw you and your multitasking

    I see the point but for the app I'm making, system modal-age would be 0wnage.
