How to use Assigned as a check for a dynamicly created form.

On my mainform I have a button to create another form as below

procedure TfrmMain.btn_NewfrmClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if not Assigned(myform) then
    begin
      myform := TmyForm.Create(frmMain);
      myform.FormStyle := fsStayOnTop;
      myform.Show;
    end;
end;

The new myform is created fine.

The OnClose of myForm contains:

procedure TmyForm.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
begin
  Action := caFree;
  myForm := nil;
end;

My question is: If I try to open the form a second time then I cannot.
It appears that the call (myForm := nil) in myForm doesn't actually set
myForm to nil;

Any help would be most appreciated.

where do you have the myform variable defined? place it before the implementation section of the mainform.
It works with me.

Bye,
