    problem showing another form

    I have two forms in my project, and when i click a button i want it to show another form so i put this line of code.

    It then comes up with the error message

    An objects reference is required for the nonstatic field, method, or property 'System.Windows.Forms.Control.Show()'
    I've tried putting in System.Windows.Forms.Control.Show() with all the other declerations, but i comes up with an error. What do i need to do.
    I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    You need to create an object of the Winform2 first by doing:

    private Winform2 foo = new Winform2();
    //later on in the onClickEvent of the button do 
    The way you are using the Show() method is as if it was in your WinForm2 class declared as a public static method.
