Controlling Execution Flow

Controlling Execution Flow

Question:
How do you command a button to go to another form, I put like follows:

Sub Double_Click ( ) GoTo form2   EndEnd Sub
OR
Sub Double_Click ( ) Load form2   EndEnd Sub
BUT NONE OF THESE WORK! How do I just command it to go to another form? Can You Help:)

Answer:
The Show routine is what you are looking for. You can’t really force what happens in a Windows application; however, by showing a form, you can push the user down a new path. Just say Form2.Show and the window will be loaded into memory and shown to the user. If you say Form2.Show 1 (number 1) the form will be shown modally, which means that the user has to do something to close the window before he can continue. Take a look at the help for the Show routine for more information.
