How to Show a form.

I have 2 forms. Form1 and Form2. And my project is not MDI. I added a button on Form1 when I click on it I want to make Form2 visible. When I start typing in the On_Click event of the button the options I see are: Form2.ActiveForm Form2.Control Connection Form2.Def back color.... There is no Form2.Show???? Please advise! Thank you.

You need to make the second form a child form... in the on click event.. Dim Form2 as new Form Form2.show() me.hide()

P.S. I am not sure that is the absolute correct way, but it is the way I navagate through my forms. Each time I need to go to the next form I have to make a new form object and hide the current one.

u have to remember every thing in VB.Net is class and so are your Form1 and Form2 Before using a class,u have to instantiate it or make it an object,so: Dim f2 as New Fomr2 'Fomr2 is a new class inherits from Form which is the base class of all forms f2.show() 'Now f2 is an instance of Form2 You can use show() now
