I have 2 forms.  Form1 and Form2.  When the program starts, I want Form1 to be displayed.  When a button is pressed, I want Form1 to disappear and Form2 to be visible.  What is the button_click code to make this happen?  I am used to VB...  Form1.Visible = false, Form2.Visible = true etc :)

Thanks,
Tony

Are you going to use Form1 again?  Or if you do, will it be a 'new' Form1?

Since your application is probably using,

  Application.Run(new Form1());

The most simple code is:

  Hide();
  new Form2().Show();

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

eternal,

I'll be switching between both forms.  I am using Application.Run(new MainForm());  The second form I'm using is frmAdmin...  I tried Hide(); frmAdmin().Show() to no avail :(  Also tried MainForm.hide = true...

Okay, IN YOUR MAIN FORM change:

  public MainForm()
  {
    //
    // Required for Windows Form Designer support
    //
    InitializeComponent();

    //
    // TODO: Add any constructor code after InitializeComponent call
    //
  }

to:

  public frmAdmin AdminForm;

  public MainForm()
  {
    //
    // Required for Windows Form Designer support
    //
    InitializeComponent();

    //
    // TODO: Add any constructor code after InitializeComponent call
    //
    AdminForm = new frmAdmin(this);
  }

  private void SwitchToAdminForm()
  {
    AdminForm.Show();
    Hide();
  }


AND IN YOUR ADMIN FORM, change:

  public frmAdmin()
  {
    //
    // Required for Windows Form Designer support
    //
    InitializeComponent();

    //
    // TODO: Add any constructor code after InitializeComponent call
    //
  }

to:

  MainForm mainForm;

  public frmAdmin(MainForm mainForm)
  {
    //
    // Required for Windows Form Designer support
    //
    InitializeComponent();

    //
    // TODO: Add any constructor code after InitializeComponent call
    //
    this.mainForm = mainForm;
  }

  public void SwitchToMain()
  {
    mainForm.Show();
    Hide();
  }


And then in your buttons, or whatever you can call the respective SwitchToMain, and SwitchToAdmin methods!

Sorry, I meant to explicitly declare,

  public frmAdmin AdminForm
  private void SwitchToAdminForm()
  MainForm mainForm;
  public void SwitchToMain()

all as Private, so if you want to change them they should look like:

  private frmAdmin AdminForm
  private void SwitchToAdminForm()
  private MainForm mainForm;
  private void SwitchToMain()

(Just like to keep the code consistent, will not affect operation - you can always make them public/internal later if you have a need).
