You have a number of choices for doing that:

1. If your 2nd class knows an instance of the 1st one, make the variable public

2. If your 2nd class knows only the structure of the 1st class, you can make the variable static

3. If your 2nd class knows an instance of the 1st one, but the variable is private/protected, you can always make the two classes friends (which I don't really recommend)

4. If your 2nd class knows an instance of the 1st one, you can add a public method to the 1st class which returns the value of the variable.

5. If your 2nd class derives from the 1st class, and the variable is protected, you can access it transparently.

Take your pick!
