Need to reload an addin for each file

I have an addin which displays a form, then when I clic a button operations are launched.

The form is no modal, so I display it, select objects, apply, selct objects, apply,... then close the form with another button (form.close).

All functions, but only on the first opend file : I open the file, use the addin, close the form. I open another file, the addin is always loaded, but when I clic on the icon to display the form nothing happens... I have to unload the addin and reload it.

Where is the problem ?

I think with form.close the form is destroyed, so a later won't work. Try from.hide instead form.close.

I thought it was something like that...


The Onexecute event is only :

Sub oRibbonButton_NewButton_OnExecute(....)





...the form is not delared in the sub. I moved the declaration in the sub, it seems to be right !
