I have a windows based application with 2 forms Login.cs and welcome.cs built in MS Visual Studio.Net  2003. I have a button in the Login page that user will click and it should bring the user to the welcome page and close the login page. I would like to know the C# code that will briing you go to another page after clicking the button.  An example of code will be very helpful. Thanks!

Hi

The following should do it:
btnLogin_click(......) // this is the button click handler on your login form
{
   welcome myWelcomeForm = new welcome();
   myWelcomeForm.show();
}

Show the window modally

MyWindow w = new MyWindow(); // login window
if(w.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
{
// login window closed with OK result
WelcomeWindow ww = new WelcomeWindow(); // welcome window
ww.Show();
}

Use main() in Program.cs to show your Login form.  Then only use Application.Run() if login was actually successful...

    static class Program
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// The main entry point for the application.
        /// </summary>
        [STAThread]
        static void Main()
        {
            Login lgn = new Login();
            if (lgn.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                Application.Run(new welcome());
            }
        }
    }
