delphi FormShow(Sender: TObject);

I can't find the root cause why a form automatically calls the show procedure in my application ....

myForm := TForm.Create(nil)

and the the form is shown ....  but why .... ??????? Myform.formstyle := fsnormal;

would like to continue the other way

myForm.ShowModal;

ig (myFirmModalresult := mrOK) then .....


----------  do not make code for me ---  just give me a hint where to look after ...

Check if the visible property is true at design time
Since you are creating it, also check to see that its not in the Auto Create form list

make sure you set visible to false: Myform.Visible := false;

Can you show your code please? I used the following code and the new form shows only when "ShowModal" is called:
var
  myForm : TForm;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  myForm := TForm.Create(nil);
  Myform.formstyle := fsnormal;
  myForm.ShowModal;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormDestroy(Sender: TObject);
begin
  myForm.Free;
end;

in your previous Q, you were changing Width, Height
did you try it without changing those properties in FormShow, FormCreate, etc ?

My first test would be to comment out the line that creates Form2 and see if the form still shows at run time.  If it does then the form IS on the auto create list.

In Delphi 2010 use the Project | Options menus and click on Forms.  You should see the list of auto create forms there.  Move Form2 to the other side.

If this is not the case then seeing more of your code (all of the form1 and form2 code) would likely allow us to show you the issue.

If you change your compiler options to Use Debug DCUs then you should be able to place a breakpoint on Form2.OnShow and follow the call stack back up to the code that caused it.

Let me know if you need more.

>myForm := TForm.Create(nil)
MyForm := TMyForm.Create(nil);?
Check unit (where placed TMyForm) for Show or ShowModal call or something like?
Check all units for Show or ShowModal call?
Debug app (F7 key and breakpoints may be help you). ;)
