I began writing this program some time ago. Since then Ive wanted to change the main form (Form1) to another form (Form2). How do I change the main form to the new form (Form2) so it shows first without the old main form (Form1) showing at the same time? (Now say that ten times really fast.............)

By selecting options on the project menu, and selecting the forms tab, you can change the main form to any of your forms.  By default, Delphi only shows the main form when your app runs.  If any other forms are showing, you are probably calling their Show method from your main form.

(The exception is MDI windows.)

Cheers,
JB
