Open Form2 (

Hello Everyone.

I am making a program in and am having trouble working out how to open a new form from a button in the app. Heres what i meen.
When the program starts it has a form asking for a username and password. Once the correct username and password has been entered i need the app to close the current form and open a different one.
I thought it would be something like

Open.Form2 or Load.Form2
or something with open or load but apparently it's not. Does anyone have any knowledge on how to do this.

Thank You

You create a new instance of the Form2 class, then call its 'Show' method.

Dim form as New Form2()
form.Show 'or form.ShowDialog() for Modal forms

Good luck,

It would be pretty helpful for you to post the error...

form.Hide() should work, but I don't know if you can hide the main form. You should use Close() if you don't plan on using the form again.

It doesn't error anymore but it doesnt work either I have tried using close() but that closes bothe forms. I have also tried Form.Visible = False but no luck. Is there a command to minimise it as that wood be suffiecient.
