Hi all Experts,

I got a project, i used the tree view to be the menu, In the nodes i store the "form name" from database into the node.tag.
So when i click on the node, i return the tag, so i know which form to be call.
Example i got three form name
frmabout, frmLogin, frmHow
for the easy way is

if node.tag = "frmabout" then
if node.tag = "frmLogin" then
if node.tag = "frmHow" then

if i got 100 form then i need to write 100 statements...

so can i combine allstatement to one? Just dynamic the code to be used to calling all forms.
