Hi - form problem

  • 12 years ago

    Hi, I'm writing an application and I have one main form which open another form, and now in second form I have a textbox which when I write that text must appear in title of form one how to connect this two forms.


    Thank you very much

    in form2 have a declaration for a form

    dim mainForm as Form

    Then have a sub in form 2 that is run when the form is loaded or shown like so:

    sub linkToForm(byRef value as Form)
    end sub

    in form1 you would call this function like so:


    Then you can use, in Form 2,  mainForm.text to read and write the title of the first form.(You will also be able to use any public properties and public methods from your first form).

    me.form1.text = textbox1.text

    I think that should work.

    An approach could be to point out the owner of form2 as:

    In form1

    dim f as new Form2



    In form2

    me.owner.text = "the new text"
