    i have two window application forms form1-registeruser.cs
    form2-details.cs
    on clicking REGISTER button on form1,form2 is opened
    but form1 is still there .....i am not getting how to close form1 with form2 still open
    my code was as follows
    private void REGISTERbtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    details obj=new details();
    obj.show();
    close();
    }

    If registerUser form is the form called from Program.cs, then it'll exit the application as soon as it closes.

    Instead, just hide it.

    private void REGISTERbtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    details obj=new details();
    obj.show();
    this.Hide();
    }

    the dispose method will do the same thing as the Close method.

    If you wanted to close the Application when there is a hidden form open, just set up a Form Closing Event that calls this Method: Application.Exit()
