Default calling another form with a button in a form

Hi, I am creating a Help-Hint dialog box and calling it from a button on a form. One problem is that when I close it the whole macro closes....it's probably something simple I'm missing but any help would be great.

P.S. - I tried copying an existing macro using the required code to make this happen but not 100%...


**update: Strange...okay my main form does not close now but reverts to a squashed frame (because of a frame size I set) and now we're dealing with frameless forms...so things get a little mixed...I might back off this one for a bit or find another angle...controltip text with multi-line?

An easy way would be to use msgBox
This will pop up a simple message box with your tip.

Another way would be to open another form.
Your button to open the info/help form could hide the main form by
You can put a close button on your info form it that when clicked closes the info form and shows the main form:
