Hi,

I have a question about applications created using windows forms.

I made a simple app, that has 4 forms. When navigating between the forms which I do with buttons, I notice that the window appears to close and then open a new one. It is visibly noticeable.

I have seen many other c# apps not do this. Unfortunately I do not have the source code of these to look at.

Can someone explain why this is occurring, and how to use multiple forms without the window appearing to close and open a new one when navigating between pages.

Thanks

If you don't want the user to see one form close and another open then don't close one form and open another. Just use one form. Instead of using multiple forms, use a single form and use multiple user controls, either removing one and adding another or displaying a new one over an old one.
