Modal. No user input (keyboard or mouse) can occur in any other form or in the menu until the modal form is hidden or released.

Although other forms in your application are disabled when a modal form is displayed, other applications are not.


(Default) Modeless. Code that occurs after the Show method is run as it is encountered.

If you omit nStyle, the form is shown in the style specified by the WindowType property.
