Hi..
In this case you can mange your Forms Like this
Public Class LoginForm
    Private WithEvents obj As Form
    Private Sub LoginForm_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
         'Here you check if the login is succesful...
         'If So then .....
               .
               .
               .
        If obj Is Nothing Then
            obj = New SplashScreen1
        End If
        obj.Show()
        Me.Hide()
        Dim StartTime As Date
        StartTime = Now
        While DateDiff("s", StartTime, Now) < 5
        End While
        obj.Close()
        If obj Is Nothing Then
            obj = New MainForm
            obj.Show()
        End If
    End Sub
    Private Sub obj_FormClosed(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosedEventArgs) Handles obj.FormClosed
        Me.obj = Nothing
    End Sub


End Class

'now if want to display the splash screen First...do this:
1.Solution Explorer-MyProject-Application 
you will see at the bottom of form a combo for the Slpash Screen..Select You Spalsh Screen and then press VIEW APPLICATION EVENTS
AND PUT THIS CODE AFTER Partial Feiends Class MyApplication:
 Protected Overrides Function OnInitialize(ByVal commandLineArgs As System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection(Of String)) As Boolean

            ' Set the display time to 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds). 

            Me.MinimumSplashScreenDisplayTime = 5000

            Return MyBase.OnInitialize(commandLineArgs)

        End Function

Open in new window
