I build a login form and want when user click on submit button then other form show. I also add new form by file->add->new project
I use the name of 2nd form which is (welcom.vb) in the coding of submit.
the coding of submit button is

Public Class Form1
 Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
 End Sub
End Class

but compiler show error on welcom.show() line. It says you have to first declare the form welcom
and when i declare it as

 dim welcom as new form

then it shows only empty form
i want to link welcom form with submit button, how should i do this.

It should be
welcom.show() without (;)

This should work fine

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
End Sub

When you name your form "welcom.vb", it generates a class welcom. To access this form you will have to use welcom rather than form.

The second method will work fine too after a small correction

Dim a As New welcome  ' instead of Dim welcome As New form

Dim abc As New formwill make a new form with the name abc

Hope it helps :)
