is there any way to get a main! window to display in front
of a response! window in a mdi environment? I know i can
hide the response! window to see the main! window i need to
see, but then i can't find any event that fires to add
script to show() the response! window again. I hope i
haven't confused anybody. any help is appreciated. note
that i don't want to use a timer.

Perhaps a Popup window would be a better choice.

You simply can not do this.

The Response window's whole reason for being is to block access to all other
windows in the application until the user responds (hence the name). The
user can't respond if it is hidden.

I think the only thing you can do is use another type of window, maybe
popup.

from PB Help:

response window
The window that displays to request information from the user and to which
the user must respond. A response window is always opened from within
another window (its parent). Typically, a response window is opened after a
specific event occurs in the parent window.
A response window is application modal: when it displays, it is the active
window (it has focus) and no other window in the application is accessible
until the user responds to it. The user can go to other Windows
applications; but when the user returns to the application, the response
window is still active.

A response window acts like a modal popup window.
