c# vs2008 winforms minimizing

Hello.  Suddenly I am having an issue with a couple of c#, vs2008 applicaitons recently written.  Form_1 double-click in the first case, and a context menu item click in the second case, cause new forms to pop up (showdialog)-- one to enter information which has its own save button and exit button, and one to conduct a search.  

In both cases, I use the Hide method to "close" the form (from the user's viewpoint), and then the close method in the calling program to close those pop up forms.

For example:
        private void Form1_DoubleClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            frmNotes f = new frmNotes();
            f.ConnString = this._ConnString;
            f.ShowDialog();
            f.Close();
        }


Intermittenly, then, the calling program minimizes after showing and closing these pop up forms.

What could be causing that?

Not sure what's causing the minimizing issue, but...

Instead of Hide() to close the dialog, actually set DialogResult() to dismiss it.  You also don't need to Close() the dialog since it has already been dismissed.  That dialog will automatically be disposed of since it goes out of scope when the method exits.

Thanks for the tip.  I'm not sure how it solved the issue, but early indications are that it did.
