Hi!

I am loading & unloading instances of the same form, but when I unload one of the form's instances (with "unload form1(x)" ...) nothing happends.

I searched through the MSDN and found some proposed answers (freeing resources) but that does NOT work.

Do you have an answer?


here is how I create those forms:

in module:
dim xxxx as form1

in code:

redim xxxx (1 to 200) as form1

then I show and close those forms.

THANX!

Igor.

Try this:

In a MODULE:

     Global xxxx() As Form1

In Code:

     Redim xxxx(1 to 200) As Form1

Then to show the first form:

     Set xxxx(1) = New Form1
     xxxx(1).Show
     
To unload the first form:

     Unload xxxx(1)
     Set xxxx(1) = Nothing



Cheers!

I've allready tried that and it doesn't work. Resources just get lower and lower when I load a form I've unloaded before.

Thank you for your answer, but it doesn't work.
