Create a new form

Stick labels and textboxes on it to display login details.

set the passwordchar property of the password textbox, so the password can't be seen as it's typed in. (* is the usual one)

In the OK and Cancel buttons set the DialogResult property.

In the form code define two public properties that read from and write to to the TextBox's texts properties.

Then in your mainform
add a login button, menu option ...

in the click event

frmLogin LoginForm;

LoginForm = new frmLogin()
LoginForm.UserName = DBUserName;
if (LoginForm.ShowDialog == DialogResult.OK)
DBPassword = LoginForm.Password;
