    Unanswered: vb .NET loading a form into a dedicated box?


    Form1 is the active form
    Button1 is a button on Form1

    when Button1 is pressed, i would like the content of Form2 to be loaded in a box to some kind of area designed to accept a form.


    in html, frames.

    You have a frame on the left (usually with links) and when a linked a pressed, the content usually appears in the right frame

    is this possible?

    First off, don't use frames unless you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO. They will cause headaches, I assure you.

    Second, I would suggest loading a user control as opposed to a form. You can define ContentPlaceHolders which allow you to dynamically load controls in to them as needed. The place holders themselves will be rendered as divs, so keep that in mind.

    As far as the frame thing goes, you can probably do what you need with a couple of floated divs. Look up the "float" CSS attribute.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
