AllowSetForegroundWindow function (winuser.h)
Enables the specified process to set the foreground window using the SetForegroundWindow function. The calling process must already be able to set the foreground window. For more information, see Remarks later in this topic.
BOOL AllowSetForegroundWindow( DWORD dwProcessId );
The identifier of the process that will be enabled to set the foreground window. If this parameter is ASFW_ANY, all processes will be enabled to set the foreground window.
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.
If the function fails, the return value is zero. The function will fail if the calling process cannot set the foreground window. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
The system restricts which processes can set the foreground window. A process can set the foreground window only if one of the following conditions is true:
- The process is the foreground process.
- The process was started by the foreground process.
- The process received the last input event.
- There is no foreground process.
- The foreground process is being debugged.
- The foreground is not locked (see LockSetForegroundWindow).
- The foreground lock time-out has expired (see SPI_GETFOREGROUNDLOCKTIMEOUT in SystemParametersInfo).
- No menus are active.
