If the FileMaker Pro application is behind other applications, this function will bring FileMaker Pro in front of the other applications.
You can use this function for example when a lengthy script is finished, or when you use the Drag and Drop functionality to drag from another application that is in front or when you drag from a Finder or Explorer window.
In the drag Triggerscript you can decide if this drag needs FileMaker to become the front application and if it does, you can call this function.
Set Variable [ $ErrorCode ; TrFile_BringToFront ]
This will bring FileMaker Pro in front of other applications.
