Well, when I open a configuration form I want the main program/main form to lock so you have to close the configuration form before you can play around with the program/main form again, otherwise the configurations form just flash a bit (maybe).

I've exprimented with the built in functions and proporties but haven't found a solution.

Help would be greatly appriceted!

iboutchkine is right but instead of open and opendialog it is Show() and ShowDialog():

    Dim config As New frmConfig
    config.ShowDialog()
