How do you control the flow a program when calling
another form to be displayed?

Example: i am at form1, making a call to display form2
which will get some user input and return to form1.

form1
--------------------------------
form2.Show;
showmessage('back from form2');

The text "back from form2" displays before I get
to form2.  How do I pass control to form2 and then
exit and return the the statment following
the statement "form2.show"?

Your help is much needed.
Thanks

use showmodal, this way control flow will be back when form1 closes.

To add to this, using ShowModal also returns a result depending on how Form2 was closed which you can use to determine if the user pressed OK or Cancel, for example.

I'm a Delphi developer, yes, from the UK. Saw Delphi 6 at the last Delphi Conference, looks great, especially the Enterprise edition with the XML support. They've speeded up the code insight as well which runs horribly slow in Delphi 5.
