   Private Sub MainForm_VisibleChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.VisibleChanged
        MessageBox.Show("hi")
   
        'WRONG
        If(sender As AKB.Tool.SafetyIsolationEditor.MainForm).Then
           
        End If


    End Sub

How do I properly cast sender so that it is treated as the Form object?

To cast:

    Dim frm As Form = CType(sender, Form)

To check the Type:

    Dim frm As Form = CType(sender, Form)
    If TypeOf frm Is  AKB.Tool.SafetyIsolationEditor.MainForm Then
           
    End If
