There is an article describing how to do this:
Working with Multiple Forms in Visual Basic .NET
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/dv_vstechar
t/html/vbtchWorkingWithMultipleFormsInVisualBasicNETUpgra dingToNET.asp

Describes how working with multiple forms has changed from previous editions
of Microsoft Visual Basic and illustrates several key techniques, including
displaying a second form, changing the appearance of another form, and using
a form as a dialog. (8 printed pages)
