Hi,

Im trapping an error with the usall

Try
      '//Code
Catch EX As Exception
      '// Code
End Try

but when running my app, the first time I get an exception there is a long pause at the "Catch EX As Exception" before it resume's then after that the Exception is caught really fast an the appication flows smoothly?

?? Any Ideas ??

The delay still occurs even if I specify the error type with

Catch ex As System.ObjectDisposedException

I think that has to do with the JIT (Just In Time)  compiler, the first time it is used it hasn't been cached yet.

Regarding your problem, I know this is related to the solution I gave in a previous thread.
Just a thought you don't have to use a collection, if you set owner property each "child" window to me
you can use the me.ownedforms to check which are active

so when you create

      Dim oNewForm As New frmDisplayRecord(iRecordToOpen)
      oNewForm.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen
      oNewForm.TopMost = True
      oNewForm.Owner = Me  <---  ADD this line
      oNewForm.Focus()
      frmMain.oFormCollection.Add(oNewForm)

you can use

        Dim oForm2 As Form
        For Each oForm2 In Me.OwnedForms
              oform2.activate
              .. or oform2.whatever
        Next


if you do it this way you won't have to catch the error

You saing I remove the whole collections thing? And just use the .OwnedForms array to keep track of all the forms I have open?  If so I presume once a use closes a form its automatically removed from the Parent.OwnedForms array?

Yes it is emub

so

sorry if I wasn't clear

For Each oForm In frmMain.ownedforms
      If oForm.Tag = iRecordToOpen Then
           oForm.BringToFront()
           oForm.activate
           bLoadNewForm = False
           Exit For
      End If
Next
