Shows a form as a modal dialog.

Use ShowModal to show a form as a modal form. A modal form is one where the application can't continue to run until the form is closed. Thus, ShowModal does not return until the form closes. When the form closes, it returns the value of the ModalResult property.

To close a modal form, set its ModalResult property to a nonzero value.

Note: If the form contains buttons with a ModalResult property set to a value other than mrNone, the form automatically closes when the user clicks one of those buttons and returns the ModalResult value as the return value of ShowModal.

You can check the return value against common return values using the global IsAbortResult, IsAnAllResult, IsNegativeResult, or IsPositiveResult functions.
