    Some questions

    First question: If I have two forms, form1 and form2, how do I after displaying form2 from form1, stop all activity on form1 while a certain variable in form2 is set to false? I tried a while loop, but that just freezes the program.
    Second question: How do I hide the start-up/main form? When I try to hide it using this.hide(), nothing happens.

    To stop activity on a field in a form, you need to apply the "disable" function to it [or set enabled to false].

    You need to set form2 as a modal window. This means it requires a response and no other forms may be clicked until the modal window is no longer active.

    This is basically a modal dialog box but I'm not sure that's what you want.
