OpenArgs equivalent in VB.Net

Been using Access and ASP for awhile now and a common tactic of mine is to filter form data based on an argument passed as an OpenArg value to the DoCmd.OpenForm function in Access or in a query parameter string in ASP. How do I do this in VB.Net?

You can define a property in a form, and set it from the caller:

Private m_UserName As String = String.Empty

  Public Property UserName() As String
      Return m_UserName
    End Get
    Set(ByVal Value As String)
      m_UserName = Value
    End Set
  End Property
