To prevent the use of a form before closing an other form used the showmodal method. But now after closing the form the OnActivate event of the new Activeform will not appear.
Do i have to do something with the modalresult. Or is there another way to do this

You're quite correct. The OnActivate event is not triggered when your other form is closed. But, the OnShow event is. you could put your code here, but beware that this code will be executed every time the form is shown.

Alternatively your code in your main form that creates and shows the second might say something like:

Form2 := TForm2.Create(nil);
Try
  If Form2.ShowModal = mrOk then
  begin
    {perform the code you previously had in the OnActivate}
  end;
Finally
  Form2.Free;


Good Luck

Lee.

Sure i can use the OnShow event, but only then when the first form is closed or hidden. Since i don't hide or close the first form the Onshow event will not appear. I still have to try the second option you mentioned.
