Unable to open a form

When using frmCodifiedMessage.Show to open the form frmCodifiedMessage, Visual Basic gives the following compile error: "Method or data member not found"

Any suggestions?

If you are SURE that the form is valid (i.e. It IS a form and has a .show method), then the next thing to check for is invalid object references.

Go into Project/References and see what is missing.

Having an invalid reference in a project will not only make the IDE run slower, but when compiling, will throw out totally absurd error messages that have nothing to do with the line of code that it claims is in error.

Is that form is designed? Or a runtime form? Please provide more details.

It is a standard form (Standard EXE), it is a copy of an existing form, but with a few changes

@JRCSystems,

the form is valid, i would have no idea what would be wrong with it, but it doesn't have a .show method, only a .ShowMeWhatThisIs :S

About the references, i'm using the winhttp services, and the ms xml parsers (dom & sax)
The form uses a listview, but that one is without a reference, it's just a component tab?

well, unless it is private/proprietary source code, ZIP the FRM/FRX files and send them to john@jrcsystems.com

I will look for anything odd.

I think I've found the problem.

On the form "frmCodifiedMsg" or the "frmBinaryMessage"

Your lsvMessages and lsvHidden controls were turned into picture boxes.

On the form where the controls went bad, I deleted them.
On the good form, I copied and pasted the controls.

Now, everything compiles on my computer.
No weird error messages.
