Hi Experts,

I have a variable that holds a string value of a name of one of the forms I have in VB6 project.

I need to show this form, by using the string value of the variable. Is that possible?

-------------------------
Example:
-------------------------
Dim X as String
X= "Form1"

I need something like X.show or Forms(X).show



Thanks in advance!

Hello feesu,

try this:
Dim frm As Form
Dim X as String

x = "Form1"
Set frm = Forms.Add x
frm.Show
