Hi,

There are two processes in the form1:

 process 1
 process 2

the process 1 will call a sub that will show form2 and take user input.  The process 2 should pause while user inputs values and resume after the user closes the form2.  What is best way to do it?  I used to pass a variable from very bottom sub to top to start process 2.  This is not very elgant.  I am new to VB.net and never used threading or waithandle before.  Thanks in advance.

I think you want to use the Modal command.

I haven't used it at all in .Net (although I know it exists).


Dim f as new Form2()

f.Modal = true
f.Show()

Yes, it worked.  As a matter of fact, it is simple.

Dim f as new form2
f.showdialog()
