Multiple-Form Application Running on .Net Compact Framework (Form Switching Problem)

I am having problems with a multiple form application written in C# for running on .Net Compact Framework.   I am using the Form Show() and Hide() methods for switch among different forms.  The switch works but the new form is always minimized.  I tried it within the WinCE emulator and also on mobile devices.  Anybody has some ideas?  

I also tried to adapt my application to run on  .Net Framework, i.e., to be a regular window application.  The form switching work fine.

Thank you for your help.

I was able to demonstrate your problem.  By reversing my Show and Hide calls, the problem was fixed.  What I mean by this is instead of hiding your first form and the showing your second form, Show the second form and THEN hide the first form.  I am very curious to see if this works for you.

eternal_21, that works.  Thanks.  I did not expect the fix to be so simple because I did not have the problem when running the app as a regular window application (in the order of hiding the 1st form then showing the 2nd form).  Any idea why the problem?

No, I have never used the compact framework before.  I don't understand why we experienced what we did, but I will investigate it and post back here :).
