One way is to show the second form modally (with a call to ShowDialog I 
believe), this will freeze the first form until the second form exits.

Another way would be to hide the first form when the second one is 
shown. Give the second form a reference to the first one, and in the 
handler functions for the accept / cancel buttons for the second form 
re-show the first form.

All the best,
