Use Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.S​howModalDialog to display a modal dialog. This API was introduced to overcome some problems associated with direct calls to Form.ShowModal from a. AutoCAD plug-in.

Hi

 

Are you referring to modeless dialog? If yes, then use Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.ShowModelessDialog

 

You can also refer http://adndevblog.typepad.com/autocad/2012/06/displaying-modal-and-modeless-forms-in-autocad-net.htm...
