StartUserInteraction for AutoCAD 2013

I'm trying to update some VB.Net code for AutoCAD 2013, and am slowly slogging my way through the API changes. Here's one I haven't been able to figure out yet:

 

The following line worked in pre-2013, but not anymore...

Dim eui AsEditorUserInteraction = Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.Editor.StartUserInteraction(Me)

 

I get this error in the editor...

Error 12 Value of type 'IECAD.fSymbols' cannot be converted to 'System.IntPtr'.

 

IECAD.fSymbols is a form in my application, and the error references the Me in my statement. What is the current correct way to activate a form while allowing for user interaction (like picking a point)?

 

Thanks.

Never mind... I figured it out. Changing Me to Me.Handle did the trick.

 

Hope this helps someone else!
