    Any subclass of control has a property "Visible". Set it to true or false to make something visible or invisible.

    If you have a form, you can show it by using the Show Method on your instance of the form. Probably, ShowDialog is what you want though, it shows the form as a dialog that is modal until you close it.

    Form1 form = new Form1();

    form.ShowDialog();
    hth
    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    The line should set picMain to invisible. False is written with a lowercase f in C#, but that's the only thing I see.

    What happened when you tried it ?
