VB.net 2005 splash screen and main form problems

P: n/a
Hi All

I have a VB.net 2005 App which has a form set as the Application splash
screen in Project properties

Another form is set as the startup form

All works great until the splash screen closes or I close it to allow error
messages to be displayed from Licence or Database checking errors

The startup form minimises when a messagebox pops up to display these errors
and you have to click on it in the taskbar to show the startup form and
hence the msgboxes

This doesn't happen ALL the time but frequently enough to be a nuisance

How can I get the startup form to remain on display whilst the splash screen
form is closing and/or message boxes are being displayed etc

I have tried form.show at different places in my code, when I am closing the
the splash screen or displaying msgboxes but no improvement
Regards
Steve

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your post!

Based on my understanding, after the splash form and the error message box
are closed, the main startup form sometimes does not appear, but minimizes
to the TaskBar.

Can you tell me where is your error message box generated? Startup Form or
Splash Form? I have tried to create a little test project regarding your
scenario, I showed the message box in Startup form's Load event, but after
I dismissed the message box, the Startup Form appears without any problem.

Is it possible for you to provide a little sample project for us to
demonstrate this problem? Then this will be helpful for the understanding.

I look forward to your feedback.

Best regards,
Jeffrey Tan
