VERY Easy C# Question

Hello, i just began playing with C#. I’m used to console C/C++ programming. I am simply wondering how I can pass a text string from one .cs form to another.cs

I have a typical login window, which consists of some textboxes, labels and buttons.


On click I want the event handler to pass the user name and password to a function in a different .cs file that is part of the project, one that holds the authenticate function logic.

I want to do something like this

Form1.cs
...
private void OK_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                  {
                   authenticate(UserName.Text, Password.Text);
                                                }
...

---------------------------
Authenticate.cs

...
authenticate(string username, string password)
                                {
            if( username == ...etc etc )
                                return etc;
                                }
...

Could some one please explain and show with a basic example how I could pass the text string.  

Thanks in advance! =)

C# is class based, so the above wouldn't work unless authenticate.cs is in its own class and if so it needs to be static so that it can be launched without declaring an instance.

The easiest solution would be for you to keep authenticate subroutine in the same class as the ok_click subroutine. Ex:

Class Form1.cs

{

    private void OK_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
       authenticate(UserName.Text, Password.Text);
     }            

      authenticate(string username, string password)
                                {
          if( username == ...etc etc )
                                return etc;
                                }
...

}

hope this helps.

I need to separate the process logic from Form1.cs

i tried something like this but it didnt work, how can i state the retrun type, or in other words how do i get it to work?

Form1.cs
...
private void OK_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                  {
                                                 Class1 = new Class1(UserName.Text); }
...


------------------------
Class1.cs
...
public class Class1
      {               public int Check(string uname)
            {
                  if(uname == "aa")
                        return 1;
                  else
                        return 0;
            }
      }

you need to either declare an instance of the class or make it static. I see you know how to declare the instance, and the example below is for static.

public static class class1
{
  public static int Check(string uname)
     {
        if(uname == "aa")
           return 1;
         else
            return 0;
      }
}

now in your ok_click you can do this
   int Valid = Class1.Check(UserName.Text);
