How you open a form from your DLL?

Basically, we can look what forms are loaded by using code below:

Dim frm As Form
For Each frm in VB.Forms
   Debug.Print frm.Name
Next

Forms.Count will give you no of forms open and then you can use what ryancys says.

The above code is not going to work from a DLL.  This will only work in the project the forms are loaded in.  I will see if I can come up with something...

I assume you are making your dll from the VB app.  When you make the call pass the VB.Forms collection

call objTest.TestCount (VB.Forms)

dll call...

Sum TestCount( frms as Object)

Dim frm As Form
For Each frm in frms.Forms
  Debug.Print frm.Name
Next

End Sub

This should work.
