VisibleChanged - only interested in knowing when form is visible

   Private Sub MainForm_VisibleChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.VisibleChanged
        MessageBox.Show("hi")
    End Sub


The messagebox displays twice, once while the form is still not visible, and once when the form becomes visible.

How can I make the messagebox come up ONLY when the form becomes visible?  

Perhaps I am using the wrong event?

Try...

    Private Sub MainForm_VisibleChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.VisibleChanged
        Dim frm As Form = CType(sender, Form)
        If frm.Visible Then
            MessageBox.Show("hi")
        End If
    End Sub
