I have 3 forms: main, AdvancedSearchMenu, and FacilitySearch. When the user clicks the AdvancedSearchMenu button on the main form, a new form appears in the style of a popup. This form contains a few different controls, including a button for FacilitySearch.
I want the form to change from AdvancedSearchMenu to FacilitySearch when the user clicks the FacilitySearch button, but I don't know how to set focus to this FacilitySearch form when the switch happens.
Here is my code:
Public Class advSearchMenu
Private Sub FacilityButton_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles FacilityButton.Click
Me.Visible = False
After the switch (from AdvancedSearchMenu to FacilitySearch) happens, the entire application loses focus, and I have to hit Esc to set focus back to the application. And when this happens, the focus is set on the main form, not the FacilitySearch.
