Sourceobject

P: n/a
In Access 97 I use Forms!Frmmain!Frmcontainer.sourceobject = "FrmWhateverform"
So I don't close forms, i just change the frmcontainer's source.

Is there something similar in VB.net? And how does the code loke like?
TX, anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Did you just want to stop showing the form but keep it loaded ?

Me.Hide() ' To Hide the form

Me.Show() 'Shows the form

Is this what you need ?

In Access, because i use sourceobject i don't have to close or hide the
form. When i write frm!sourceobject = "frmmyform" that form is loaded
into the container and the previous form is gone.
So in vb.net, i know the "show form or hide form...." codes. But it's
not really that what i'm looking for.

TX for the reply anyway.
