Display Windows User-Forms in AutoCAD using Vb.net

What is the best/prefered method for displaying Windows User-Forms in Autocad?

Below is what I have used I don;t know what the difference/advantages are?

 

'make a sure a reference to System.Windows.Forms exists in the project

Dim myform As System.Windows.Forms.Form

myform =

NewformTextSeries

 

 

1) Use the commands/methods from Windows (System.Windows.Forms)  

 

' Show the User-Form 

myform.SetDesktopLocation(10, 10)

myform.ShowDialog()

 

 

 

2) Use the commands/methods from Windows (Autocad.ApplicationServices) 

' Show the User-Form  Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.ShowModalDialog(myform)

 

 

 

*******************************************************

 

Does anybody have an example of showing modeless forms using AutoCad Palettes?

Thanks for the tutorial, is there a "library" of Autodesk VB.Net available ?

This is the only book I've seen.

Are there any more?

Thanks for the information, but I only have VB.net and can't open the "C.net" file to view it

 

 If you can post the code I'll be able to see the example and apply it to VB.net
