I have two forms, one is the main form, and the other is a small dialog-like (not an actual dialog object, just another form) form which is used to add a small bit of information. I want to be able to create the small form, have the user enter input (or press 'cancel'), and have the main form not respond to anything the user does until the small form is done with (either cancelled, or accepted). I've tried setting 'Form.Enabled' to 'false', but that didn't seem to do anything at all.

Set the form to "Centre Parent" and use Form.ShowDialog(this). ShowDialog shows the form as a modal form meaning you cant do anything in the parent form until the child form has closed.
