Login form closing on loading usercp

P: 9
I'm developing a program with a login form. I want the login in form to be the first form that loads, and I want it to close itself when the main CP loads. However, when I set frmLogIn as the startup form and attempt to close it upon loading the next form it closes the entire program.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub btnLogin_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnLogin.Click
  3.         frmMain.Show()
  4. End Sub
That is the code to load the main CP.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2.     Private Sub frmMain_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
  3.         frmLogin.Close()
  5.  End Sub
That is the code I'm attempting to use to close the login form when the form with the CP on it loads.

Any help is appreciated.

EDIT I managed to find an answer.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     Private Sub btnLogin_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnLogin.Click
  2.         frmMain.Show()
  3.         Me.Hide()
  6.     End Sub
Me.Hide() makes the login form 'invisible'. So that it doesn't show after the CP loads.
