If you wish to show a form more than once, this meaning that you want to have multiple form instances active, you have to create and show multiple instances. You can do this by performing the following:

Dim frm1 as MyForm
Dim frm2 as MyForm
Set frm1=new MyForm
Set frm2=new MyForm
Load frm1
Load frm2
frm1.Show
frm2.Show
...
' Do something here
...
unload frm1
unload frm2
Set frm1=nothing
Set frm2=nothing


The code from above displays 2 forms for a while (while that something is performing) and after that it closes both form instances and releases all the resources.
If you need more directions, please feel free to ask.

Regards,
TILL
