just use

     Form1.ShowModal;

instead of

     Form1.Visible := True;

Here is another way if you want to create this window at runtime and not automatically when the app starts:

Go to Project / Options and remove the FormX from the autocreate.

Then when you want to show the form ( I assume this is a dialog box for example), then:

FormX := TFormX.Create(FormMain);
try
  if FormX.ShowModal = mrOK then
    //OK button was pressed on the form
  else
    //Some other button, like CANCEL button was pressed
finally
  FormX.Free;
end;
