Creating The Form

Project > Add New Item > Windows Form. Name it using 'frm' at the start (our convention)
Set the 'Form Border Style'
Set 'MaximiseBox' and 'MinimizeBox' properties
Set StartPostion
Set 'Text'
Set 'icon' (or turn off ShowIcon)

Nice Things To Do

Add this before the constructor

		//********** CONSTRUCTOR **********
Add this form load event

		//********** FORM LOAD **********

Include the frmMyNewForm.h file in any files that will call the form

(When looking for help on forms check 'Dialog Boxes', as additional forms are often dealt with in chaptors based on dialog boxes in reference books)
