Hello all:

   I have a small issue that I can;t seem to figure out.  I am useing a sub main() to start my app and to display a login form....   the problem that I am having is that weither the user clock "OK" or "Cancel" my result code is always windows.form.dialogresult.cancel....   what gives?

I put a couple of msgbox's in place to test and make sure I didn't have the labels messed up or something like that...


Public Sub Main()
        Dim LogIn As New LoginForm()
        Dim result As DialogResult
        result = LogIn.ShowDialog
        MsgBox(result.ToString)
        If result = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
            'validate user here
            Application.Run(New MainForm)
        End If
    End Sub
 
 
Public Class LoginForm
 
    Private Sub OK_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles OK.Click
        MsgBox("Clicked ok")
        Me.Close()
    End Sub
    Private Sub Cancel_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Cancel.Click
        MsgBox("Clicked cancel")
        Me.Close()
    End Sub
End Class

You need to set the DialogResult... see below
 Private Sub OK_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles OK.Click
        MsgBox("Clicked ok")
        Me.DialogResult = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK
        Me.Close()
    End Sub
    Private Sub Cancel_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Cancel.Click
        MsgBox("Clicked cancel")
        Me.DialogResult = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Cancel
        Me.Close()
    End Sub
