Thanks for clicking.
I've converted over my appication from vb6 to vb.net.
As part of the upgrade wizard it uses DefInstance property to reference controls within a form from outside that form.
I've hit problems with DefInstance when initializing a new instance of a form. In short it ends up in a repeating loop due to the initialisation of the form calling DefInstance for a control before form has been initialized properly
Is there a way around using DefInstance?? How are controls referenced from outside that form if creating vb.net project from new.
