VB.net > Making another form active

I just started my 5th programming corse and for the life of me i cant find what im looking for. im probably just screwing up sintax or somehting.

Basically, i have 1 solution with 1 project and 2 forms in that project.

if i have form1 which has a button1 in it and a form 2

Form 1 is what executes first when the program starts running.

But what code do i need to have in the button1's onclick Subroutine that will cause form2 to become active??

all i have been able to find is how do to this in VB.6.0 by going form2.visible = true, but since form2 doesn't appear to have that property for it's control, i assume that was one of the (many) rivision points from VB 6 to VB. NET...

sumarized question:

what line of code will cause form2 to pop up infront of form1; AND if i have a characterbla.vb class file instanciated with characterBla variableName = new characterBla, should i be able to access that object and it's variables from form2 with variableName.whatEver() ??? or is there something i need to prefix?

        'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

    End Sub

    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
        If disposing Then
            If Not (components Is Nothing) Then
                components.Dispose()
            End If
        End If
        MyBase.Dispose(disposing)
