I have a text box named txtFname.text and txtLname.txt in two different forms.  I want to send the first txtFname.text which is in my FindCustomer.vb form to the txtFname.text on another form which is called SelectService.vb, how can I do this?  I need to do the same for txtLname.text field.

Declare txtFname on SelectService form as public, then you will be able to call SelectService.txtFName.Text = txtFname.Text from FindCustomer form


OR

in SelectService form create a property:

Public Property FName As String
        Set(ByVal Value As String)
            txtFName.Text = Value
        End Set
End Property

and assign text using that property

Also, you will need a reference to the SelectService form somewhere.

In a module store a global variable like this:

Module Stuff
     Public _SelectService as Form
End Module

When you instantiate the form, set the reference variable to point to the form like this:

Dim f as New SelectService()
f.Show
_SelectService = f

Now you can talk to all of the public items on the form just like chaniewskim was saying:

_SelectService.FName  = "Test"

or

_SelectService.txtFName.Text

The text field of the label can be altered the same way as the textbox.

OK, so don't worry with creating properties - you'll have time to learn this.

Click lblFName and set Modifier to Protected (using Properties window)

Then doubleclick btnGoToService and place a code

SelectService.lblFName.Text = txtFName1.Text

I don't know the name of you SelectService form variable - so update that code accordingly.
