hi waynespangler i think this will close the entire application. but my question is to close only a single form and activate the parent.

Sorry about that, I missed read it. I set up form1 with a button that has in the click event:

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Form2.ShowDialog()
    End Sub

In form2 I added a button with the following button click:

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

And it works as expected. How is yours different compared to mine?

ok i've got it.
thanks for help all of you.

no me.close() not working it showing error
