Use a Windows Form as a Function

I have a login form I will be using a few times in my app.

How do i call this form like a function.  So the form is displayed and allow the use to confirm their login and when the form is closed it returns true or false.

You can show the form modally and then receive a DialogResult (which can be specified inside the login form) as a returned result.  Here's an example:

'Create the login form
Dim frmLogin As New LoginForm
Dim dlgResult As DialogResult = frmLogin.ShowDialog()

If dlgResult = DialogResult.Yes Then
      'Login successful
ElseIf dlgResult = DialogResult.No Then
      'Login failed
End If

--------------------
Inside the login form, you can set the result that will be returned like this:

                  Me.DialogResult = DialogResult.Yes

In your Main form declare a public shared function where you display your form.
In all other forms call your shared function
