Hey,

So I'm developing a desktop application in C# using Visual Studio 2008.

It uses multiple forms to lead users by the nose and collect input.

I am using standard form swap code:

form1.Show()
form2.Hide() 

The only problem is both forms have their own entry for the windows taskbar and switching between them causes it to alternate between the two (if that makes any sense).

I haven't much experience with forms in VS so any help would be appreciated.

I really want the application to appear as though it were only one form.

Thanks,
Troy

Sounds like you want MDI child forms.

Basically you need to set form2.MdiParent = form1 (or your main form) before you show it
