Hello Experts,

In VB6 inside of form load event I could simply type Me.Hide and hide the form from that screen and task manager. How do I accomplish the same in VB 2005?

    It doesn't work inside of form load event, but in form shown event - it does:

        Private Sub Form1_Shown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Shown
        End Sub
