Hi

I used to program in VB, and now I have to use C++ .NET (don't ask why)

1) How/where do i declare a global collection that all my forms can see and communicate with?

2) I figured out that in order for form A to display form B, we create an instance of B in A, and do a B::ShowDialog(this);
the question is, how do I pass information back to A from B, I tried including A.h in B but it doesn't like it

please help

If you keep some collection in form A, you can add pointer to this collection to form B as class member:

public:
    CSOmeCollection* pCollection;

When form A created form B, it sets pCollection to it's own collection object:

pB->pCollection = &collection;
// show B dialog now

B form works with collection using this pointer.
