Displaying AutoCAD 'Materials' dialog box

To save writing my own "Create Material" form I though I would try the line below.


 acDoc.SendStringToExecute("Materials ", True, False, True)


However, when called from my form, the command does not execute till I end my command (I'm inside a form called from another form and the command doesn't execute till both forms are closed)


There has to be a better way of doing this, so I can leave my forms running.
