Multiple Form Interaction

Post by freeman »


i've a project with two forms --> The MainForm and the search dialog form. I open the search form with following code:

Call-SearchForm_psf ... ing-forms/

Now i can't interact with the main form, until i close the search form. I need to call the form like "$Form.Show()" to allow interaction... How i can do that in a multiple form project? Any solution? :roll:

Thanks a lot

This is an automated post. A real person will respond soon.

Thank you for posting, stefan.soller.

Did you remember to include the following?
  • 1. Product, version and build (e.g. Product: PowerShell Studio 2014, Version & Build: 4.1.71. Version and build information can be found in the product's About box accessed by clicking the blue icon with the 'i' in the upper right hand corner of the ribbon.)
    2. Specify if you are running a 32 or 64 bit version
    3. Specify your operating system and if it is 32 or 64 bit.
    4. Attach a screenshot if your issue can be seen on the screen
    5. Attach a zip file if you have multiple files (crash reports, log entries, etc.) related to your issue.
If not, please take a moment to edit your original post or reply to this one.

The forms are show modally, which means it locks the process until the Window is hidden.

Unfortunately PowerShell doesn't work well with modal-less forms. If can be done, but it can be a hassle to maintain.

In the following topic I mention the changes you need to make to the exported GUI script:

But we don't support this the product.
