As far as I can tell, you can't open another form that way.

However, you could create 3 different blocks (one for each button) and put them on tab canvas (one block per canvas). Or, create 3 different stacked canvases and - again - put one block onto each of them.

Button code would then simply navigate to these blocks (GO_BLOCK).

Did you correctly set its X and Y properties?

the problem is on the "visible" property.
explanation:
I have 2 buttons 1: EMP(visible), 2: Insert(not visible).
1:EMP has when-button-pressed trigger :set_item_property('insert',visible,property_true);
2:Insert has when-boutton-pressed trigger :go_item('id'); show_view('canv_stacked');

=> the stacked canvas is not displayed, but when I change from the palette button "insert" and make it visible, the canvas will be displayed
why !!

I solved the problem by adding these two instructions when-button-pressed trigger of EMP:
set_item_property('insert',ENABLED,PROPERTY_TRUE);
set_item_property('insert',NAVIGABLE,PROPERTY_TRUE);
