i'm creating a network program, and a part of it involves drawing lines on a form.. to put it simply

is there a way to refer to the form of the client computer i'm connected to, from the host computer?

i.e  say form1.line etc.. (refering to the client computer instead of the host)

There is no way to refer to a line object on a form in anothe VB application. You can use the DDE link to connect a picture box on a form to a picture box on a form in an application even on another computer via a network. The picture boxes would be the size of the form at the other end to appear as if you were drawing lines on the form.
