  • It really depends on if we are talking about data where perhaps the label on Form2 has Bindings set e.g. DataBindings.Add, otherwise you change the modifier property of the label from private to public which then allow you to access/change the label value without closing and opening the form again. 

    There are other ways too but would be great if you could provide more details rather than a very generic question.

Contact via my Twitter (Karen Payne) or Facebook (Karen Payne) via my MSDN profile but will not answer coding question on either.

  • Hi zeref_arie,

    I recommend using Interfaces for this kind of functionality. Depending on what you're doing, it maybe "overkill", but generally speaking it's the best way to go about doing this. If you start out just accessing public properties on another form, you end up tightly-coupling the two forms ... and if you find that you need to extend that functionality to other forms, you'd end up with a lot more work or rewriting everything.

    See my blog post ( and hopefully it will give you some ideas for your situation.

    I also have two other blog posts about passing data between forms (the 3rd option in the first post below makes use of Interfaces as well ... pretty much like in my blog post above):

    Hope this helps …  =0)
