Bind to dataset on main form from second form.

Not sure if I am doing something wrong here but I can bind to the dataset on my main form perfectly and the data shows in my controls. The problem is the data in the second form is not advancing ?? The data in the main form is advancing and both controls are bound exactly the same, with no changes. Why would one advanced and the others not ?

Please explain your current implementation scenario. Is both forms having same coding with independent Dataset? Or DataSet is placed in Form1 and Accessing from Form2 ? If so, How you passed Dataset to second form? ByRef or ByVal? Please Explain

Thanks.

The dataset is on the main form (form1). This is the form load for Form 2.

Private Sub Form2_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Dim b As Binding
        Dim i(7, 2) As Object

        i(0, 0) = txtLast
        i(1, 0) = txtFirst
        i(2, 0) = txtMiddle
        i(3, 0) = txtEmail
        i(4, 0) = txtAddress
        i(5, 0) = txtCity
        i(6, 0) = txtState
        i(7, 0) = txtZip

        i(0, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase
        i(1, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase
        i(2, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase
        i(3, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase
        i(4, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase
        i(5, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase
        i(6, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase
        i(7, 1) = MyForm1.SQLCase


        i(0, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.last"
        i(1, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.first"
        i(2, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.middle"
        i(3, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.email"
        i(4, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.address"
        i(5, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.city"
        i(6, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.state"
        i(7, 2) = "icase.icaseparty.zip"

        Dim l As Integer
        For l = 0 To i.GetUpperBound(0)
            b = New Binding("Text", i(l, 1), i(l, 2))
            Try
                i(l, 0).DataBindings.Add(b)
            Catch ex As Exception
                MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString)
            End Try
        Next
    End Sub

You mean filling the dataset ? The dataset is filled in form1. Records are not being added anywhere, they are already there in the database.

Did you say, MyForm1.SQLCase is having data but not getting bound to your controls? Or you aint getting any data at runtime on even dataset?

Myform1 is working beautiful. When I advance the BM the textbox on form1 shows the data perfectly. The textbox on Form2 shows the first record no matter what. Both forms are bound Exactly the same way to the same dataset and same datamember. The only difference in the two is the MyForm1.SQLCase reference instead of SQLCase

The two forms will have different bindingcontexts, hence binding managers.  You need to reed the Remarks in this link

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.bindingcontext.aspx

When "The data in the main form is advancing" that is because the binding manager for that data, on that form, is changing .Position.  But because the "the data in the second form" has a different binding manager, for which the .Position is not changing, it "is not advancing".  It may be possible to synchronise them, but we would need to know a bit more about the overall set up.  E.g. why are you showing the same data on two forms?  Is one form a child of the other?  That sort of thing.

Well the first form just shows the customers name, the second form will be to edit the data like the address and such. Any ideas on a different way, I am open to suggestion.

A Panel or GroupBox on the first form - containing the detail fields from the second form - that you make visible or not (and possibly resize the form to accommodate) depending on whether you are in edit mode or not?

A tabcontrol isnt enough to manage in a single form?

Yeah I can do that, the second form just look cool !!

Better yet I did this and like it better.

Me.BindingContext(MyForm1.SQLCase, "icase").Position = MyForm1.BindingContext(MyForm1.SQLCase, "icase").Position
