I am creating a windows application using .NET and new to this programming.

        I am working on a Stand alone application. I created a form which has got five buttons
1.Add a User
2.Add a Project.
3. Assign the project to a User.
4.Assign the User to a Project.
When I click on option '1'
A new page should open asking for additional information.

For example:

User Name :
Project name :

Can we have multiple forms in a single project.Also, Please suggest me what you would do to achieve this?

Thanks for your help

You can have as many forms as you want...

Click on Project --> Add Windows Form and click on "Open" to keep the default form name which in your case would be "Form2".

Then you can use code like this to create an instance of Form2 and show it:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim f2 As New Form2
        f2.ShowDialog() ' code executions stops here until f2 is closed

        ' if you need to get data off the form...
        Dim UserName As String = f2.TextBox1.Text
        Dim ProjectName As String = f2.TextBox2.Text
    End Sub
