How to disable the back side form when a dailog box opened.

P: 75
I' developing a VB application. When user clicks on 'Tools' option from the Main Form, a dailog box will appear, which is developed using another VB form itself. But while the dailog box is visible in front of Main Form, if user clicks on accidentally the backside appearing Main Form, this Dialog box will goes back which is invisible. But I don't want to this to happen. Until the user responds either OK or CANCEL button in dailog box the back side MAIN form should not be active. How to do this...? Please help me.

Thanks & regards,

I had set my form's BorderStyle property to 3-Fixed Dailog.
But still couldn't solve.

Please tell me how to set Dailog Modal.

you need to pass that as an argument with the SHOW method of form.
