Hi,

   I am having two forms say FormA and FormB, FormA is having Listview and a Public Function say LoadData, to fill ListView with data, I called this function from Form_Load_Event of FormA which load the ListView with data without problem but if I call this Function form FormB it does not do any thing.

I call this function from FormB in following manner:

Private Sub btnOk_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnOk.Click

     Dim FrmC as New FormA

      FrmC.LoadData()
End Sub


Thanx

Right....because you have created a NEW instance of FormA and called its function.  You need a reference to the actual FormA instance that is on your screen.

You need to pass a reference to FormA into FormB when you create it.

Or if you have VB.Net 2005, you can iterate the forms collection to find the right one.
