I have a main form that I load, and the first thing it does is load another login form.  I need to get the result of the form, which I am able to do, but if they have the wrong password, I want to ask them to try again or cancel.  Its that dialogresult I don't seem to to catch.  Here is the load function of the main form.

 Private Sub frmMaintenance_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim myLogin As New frmSetupLogin
        If myLogin.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
            Dim mVersion As String = Application.ProductVersion.ToString
            Dim myUtil As New InspectionSetup
            mSetupMarkUp = myUtil.GetSetupMarkup
            Me.Text = Me.Text & Space(10) & "Version  " & mVersion
        Else
            Dim i As Integer
            i = MsgBox("Invalid password", MsgBoxStyle.RetryCancel)
            If i = vbCancel Then
                End
            Else
                myLogin.ShowDialog()
                ' myLogin.ShowDialog()
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

Here is the code in the login form click event

 Private Sub OK_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles OK.Click
        If txtPassword.Text = "xxxxxx" Then
            Me.DialogResult = DialogResult.OK
        Else
            Me.DialogResult = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.No

        End If
    End Sub

thanks in advance.

code looks fine to me, only modification i suggest is frmMaintenance_Load event.
change your existing frmMaintenance_Load event to
 Private Sub frmMaintenance_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
Dim myLogin As New frmSetupLogin
        While True


            If myLogin.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
                Dim mVersion As String = Application.ProductVersion.ToString
                Me.Text = Me.Text & Space(10) & "Version  " & mVersion
                Exit While
            Else
                Dim i As Integer
                i = MsgBox("Invalid password", MsgBoxStyle.RetryCancel)
                If i = vbCancel Then
                    End
                Else
                    'myLogin.ShowDialog()
                    ' myLogin.ShowDialog()
                End If
            End If
        End While

    End Sub

thanks appari, that is much better, but if I click nothing in password, it comes back and asks to retry, that's good.  But when I then enter the correct password, I have to click ok 2 times before it takes, then goes into the program.  This is what the code looks like now.

Dim myLogin As New frmSetupLogin

        While True
            If myLogin.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
                Dim mVersion As String = Application.ProductVersion.ToString
                Dim myUtil As New InspectionSetup
                mSetupMarkUp = myUtil.GetSetupMarkup
                Me.Text = Me.Text & Space(10) & "Version  " & mVersion
                Exit While
            Else
                Dim i As Integer
                i = MsgBox("Invalid password", MsgBoxStyle.RetryCancel)
                If i = vbCancel Then
                    End
                Else
                    myLogin.ShowDialog()
                    ' myLogin.ShowDialog()
                End If
            End If
        End While
