Well the first method would be when you instanciate the child

dim fchild as new child1
fchild.label1.text = "hello"
fchild.datagrid1.datasource = ds.tables(0)
 etc..
fchild.show


if the child is already loaded

you could use the mdichildren property

something like

for each x as form in me.mdichildren
   if x.name = "yourchildformname"
       ctype(x,yourchildformname).label1.text = "hallo"
       ctype(x,yourchildformname).datagrid1.datasource = ds.tables(0)
   endif
next

or you could define the child form global in the form then you could use in anywhere in your parent form

       Dim mdiParen As mdiParents = CType(Me.MdiParent, mdiParents)
        mdiParen.ondata(dt)
