    How do we access form controls from a module file ?

    Hi, Someone please tell me how to access a window form from inside a module file ? I tried "inherits mywindowform" and also "imports mywindowsform" but none works. In VB6, all I had to do was using the name of the form and that was it. VB.Net is driving me nuts. Please advise, dominico

    How do we close a modeless form in vb.net ?

    hehehe...you got me, bro. It works after I remove the "New." I don't understand why "New" didn't work. My apology, I will be explicit next time.
