Multiple Forms c# - Switch form quickly and smoothly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am sure this question has been asked a thousand times, but i cant find any good documentation on switching forms quickly without seeing the desktop. I have 5 forms which are all accessed by the main form. What method is best to use or can some one give me a link to documentation.

    Currently i am using ShowDialog() but this is not very quick and the main form minimizes before the other form is loaded. I have already intialised the forms but it is far to slow between switching.

    Any help would be appreciated.

     

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    This forum is for windows mobile based programming, if you are talking about desktop.

    Then you are out of scope here.

  • No i am questioning about windows mobile platform, when i say the desktop i mean the home screen / main screen (not to sure what correct name is). I have now solved this issue by using a masterclass that stores all the form classes. This way i can cache the forms and the trasition betweeen the two forms is very quick and you dont see the form minimizing.

     

    Thanks again.
