Linking more than 2 forms together in

P: 1
In my program I have a menu screen which has links to other forms on it. It's only a notepad but I'm trying to add maximum features to it as it's my final project. I have one link that works and that is to the main text editor.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub LinkLabel1_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs) Handles LinkLabel1.LinkClicked
  3. Main_Window.Show()
  5.     End Sub

I have another link that takes you to the help screen that doesn't work at all. I get a green underline under 'help'. I don't know if I should declare it, but usually it recognizes a form and change colour but not this time

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     Private Sub LinkLabel2_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs) Handles LinkLabel2.LinkClicked
  3.         Help.Show()
  5.     End Sub

The word "Help" is the name of a Class in VB.Net so, you will want to rename your form. Try renaming the form to "HelpForm" or something other than just "Help". That should fix it.

I guess IronRazer's answer is the best way to address this situation. I also thought of renaming your form and declare it on your code to connect two forms.
