Aside from your default form, how do you get another form to show? It used to be Form.Show() But that don''t work anymore, hehe.

Forms are just classes that use GDI+ to display something to the user.


Dim myForm As New Form2() ''Form2 is the name of the form class you want to show
myForm.Show()

Most Windows Forms controls(including forms) are merely wrappers for their Win32 counterparts - I doubt many of them use GDI+ unless its for something special.
