Im doing some reports on a c# winforms app ive been working on. I want the reports to generate upon a mouseclick (IE not be visible all the time) and the best way i can see to do this is use the mouse click to open a popup form with the report docked inside the form.

is this the best way to go about it?

Many thanks

I thought I understood a bit of English, but I haven't the faintest idea what you mean by Im doing some reports on a c# winforms app ive been working on Is this newspeak?
I know what a popup menu or a combobox is, but a popup form?
More explanation wanted please.


Sorry, I wasnt trying to be unclear...

i'm currently working on a windows forms application in c#.

As part of this application I need to generate some reports. At the moment the user clicks a button on the main form that says "generate report 1" etc. This button click opens a new form where the report is located.

I approached it this way so that the report wasnt always visible on the main form.

Hope thats a bit clearer!
