Hi tryokane;

Not sure what you mean. The following code when placed in a button click event will create a form of type MyNewForm.

    Dim nForm As New MyNewForm
    nForm.Show()

If this is not what you want please let me know.

Hi tryokane;

This should do what you want

    Private nForm As MyNewForm = Nothing

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        If nForm Is Nothing Then
            nForm = New MyNewForm
            nForm.Show()
        Else
            ' Give the form nForm the focus
            nForm.Activate()
        End If

I think you mean you want to use a form in another project at design time.
Yes that is possible.
Right click on your project name in the Solution Explorer, select Add Existing item, and browse to the folder where the other form is.

You need a reference to the form you created and then do the following.

    ReferenceToForm.Activate()
