Get focus on SolidWorks while running an add-in with a User Form

Hi there,


I have a SolidWorks Add-in running opening a User Form.

While the User Form/Add-in is active I can not acces SolidWorks.

The User Form has two(2) DataGridViews on it representing data from the SW files in the current directory.

Loading the data for the DataGridViews is taking some time so I was wondering if it is possible to keep the Add-in running in the background and get focus on SolidWork.

The Add-in acts like a file browser so I like to update when a file is saved just like the Windows File Explorer does.
