    Question Working with more than one form?

    Hi There, how are you?

    I'm currently trying to work with more than one form, but I didn't succeed yet. What I need is quite simple: Once the program runs, a small form appears first asking "what would you like to do" with corresponding buttons for each option. Each button loads a new different form for a different task. So basically I need to open and close forms, also having two forms loaded at the same time (pop-up style) would be great for certain purposes.

    I know it may sound simple, but although I've searched already, I still haven't figured how to do it properly. I'm currently using VC++ 2008 and my project is a Windows Forms Application. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks a lot!

    Windows Forms Application problems are discussed in the appropriate Forums like:
    Managed C++ and C++/CLI
    or some of the .NET Programming one

    Code:
    //Leave this in your event handle
    FormClass x=new FormClass();
    x.Show();

    Ok, one step at a time. My biggest problem is that I can't find a way to make the form RETURN a value when it closes.

    My idea is that depending on what the user chooses at the first form, it returns an specific value. For example, Form 1 has button1, button2 and button3. If uses clicks button2, it closes and returns 2.

    Sounds simple but I've been having a hell of a hard time trying to figure it out! Any ideas?

    Thanks!!

    Given that description, there are several potential approaches, which one being best fit depending on specifics of the concrete scenario that are yet unknown. Discussing that here would certainly be too off-topic. So please repost your question in the appropriate forum section (see above) unless a moderator already has moved this thread over there by the time you read this.

    That's C#.

    I am really sorry, I'm new here and I'm a little lost with all these forum sections. As you advised me, I opened a new thread here:
