Hide/Unhide modal and parent form.

P: n/a
Hi All

I am developing an vb 2005 winforms application that connects to a database
and displays a datagridview of the data. A user can select and then edit, or
create a new entry by opening a modal form and editing the record. I would
like the user to be able to hide either the parent form or the parent and
modal form if they are currently editing in the modal form and unhide the
parent or both forms from the notification icon. I seem to be able to do
this without problems with the parent form but not both forms if the modal
form is open (it opens a new instance of the form but without any uncommitted
changes the user may have made)

Any ideas?
Appreciate any assistance.

I am sorry that I couldn't understand what you mean in the above sentence.
Could you please explain it more?

I look forward to your reply.

Hi Linda

Thanks for your response. Sorry if I didn't explain myself accurately.

I would like the user to be able to hide the application until they decide
to unhide it from the notification icon in the system tray. I would like
them to be able to do this whether or not they have opened the modal form and
commenced entering data into it.
