Windows Form

This is probabbly a really simple question.  I have created blank application.  On this I've added a context menu.  I added a few menu choices to this.

Can someone explain how I navigate to different areas of the application.  For example say if the opening form would have a label displaying the text "Form1". what would I need to do if I wanted to cick a button in the menu that would change the form and display a button instead ?

I'm guess I'm asking if I would need two forms ?

If this is the case is the best pratice to create a template so that if I did this and then changed the orginal design all the other forms I've created would automatically update ?

Thanks.

Hi andyw27;

You need to have created the Button or Form before you can use the Visible = True or False or created the Form before you can Hide or Shoe.

In your menu click event you would put your code that you want to happen

so if you want something to happen when you press a button you put it in the button click event.  If you want it to happen when you click on the menu put it in the menu click event.  There are more events then just clicking VS lists a whole bunch of em


You don't necessarily need two forms you coupld simply just hide the label and make the button visible


in the menu click

label1.visible = false
button1.visible = true


if you want to change to a new form you can go
frmOld.hide()
frmNew.show()

and in the design of the frmNew have your button added to it
