NewBee: I have One Solution with Two Projects, How Do I access the Second Project?
Posted on 2004-08-26
First let me apologize for asking this question, I know it has a simple answer but I am VERY new and need to ask the question anyway. ( I am 60 years young [no lie] and I am trying to learn this stuff on my own..)
I have created a VB.NET application that contains several forms with several controls on each form. I use this application (called 'DataInput') to add data to a few Access databases. This all works and I have created a Deployment Solution as well.
I have started a second application (called 'DataManager') in a different Folder. This application has a single form in it which I will use as a MDI parent. (isMDIContainer = True). I have added the 'DataInput' project (DataInput.vbproj) to the 'DataManager' Project by adding an "Existing Project" to the 'DataManager' Solution. I now have a Single Solution that contains Two Projects.
Now here is the embarrasing question. How to I get at the 'DataInput' Forms and Functions from within the 'DataManager' Code?
I guess what I need to know is how to Instantiate an instance of the 'DataInput' project so that the forms can be added as Child forms to the 'DataManager' Parent form.
