Sorry, let me be more specific:  Place a button on your form from the toolbox.  Double click the button, which will take you to the code for the button.  Place the following code in your subroutine for the button and it should look like this:

Private Sub Yourbutton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles YourButton.Click
      Dim objForm As frmNewForm
        objForm = New frmNewForm
        objForm.Owner = Me
        objForm.ShowDialog()
        objForm.Dispose()
End Sub

I did code this in VB.NET 2003, but I don't think it should matter.  If it does, let me know.

In VB.Net 2005, you can use the "default instance" of forms just like you did in VB6.  This is useful for when you only want ONE instance of each form available.

Instead of creating a new instance as shown above, you simply use the forms name:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(...) Handles Button1.Click
        SomeForm.Show()
    End Sub

You can use "SomeForm" from anywhere in the application to refer to the default instance.

If you want more than one instance of "SomeForm" then do as above and create new instances with the "new" keyword.

 Private Sub Button8_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button8.Click

    End Sub
End Class

Private Sub Button8_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button8.Click
 Dim objForm As frmNewForm
        objForm = New frmNewForm
        objForm.Owner = Me
        objForm.ShowDialog()
        objForm.Dispose()
  End Sub

What this will do is create a new instance of the form you want to open, and it will keep the form open all to itself, until the user closes it.  Try it out, see if you like it.
