Login screen is most likely created as
Dim MyloginForm as new LoginForm
MyLoginForm.show

And you access the variable like
LoginForm.PublicVar

LoginForm and MyLoginForm are two instances of the same form now and therefor LoginForm.PublicVar <> MyLoginForm.PublicVar

Declare a public variable in your main form and set its value in the loginForm

Dim MyLoginForm as new LoginForm
Dim MyMainForm as new MainForm

Load MyLoginForm
Load MyMainForm

MyLoginForm.Show vbModal
MyMainForm.PublicVar = MyLoginForm.PublicVar
MyMainForm.Show

Start your project from a .BAS MODULE and all vars declared there will be GLOBAL to all forms. You have to tinker with the project properties screen to tell it to start in SUB MAIN

put this code in sub main

sub main()
Dim MyLoginForm as new LoginForm
Dim MyMainForm as new MainForm

Load MyLoginForm
Load MyMainForm

MyLoginForm.Show vbModal
MyMainForm.TempVar = MyLoginForm.TempVar
MyMainForm.Show
end sub

Give both MainForm an LoginForm the tempvar variable as public

You may also want to use vb's form properties like:

'Declarations
Private intValue As Integer

Public Property Get Status() As Integer
    Status = intValue

End Property

Public Property Let Status(val As Integer)
    intValue = val

End Property


The form variable will hold it's value as long as it is still in memory, so you can hide the form, but don't unload.
