Hello,
I have a class Form2 in my MFC project which is defined as :
class Dee_Form2 : public CDialog
{
    Load ld ;
// code for class' data and functions
}

I have another class called Load in the project which has prvate data and public member functions. I need to be able to acess most of the private data members of load through form 2 . I dont want to have to write a get member function to return a data member from the Load class. Whats the workaround?  
Thanks
-D

Have the members you need to access as public members.

Alternatively, declare class Form2 as a friend of class Load:

#include "form2.h"

class Load
{
    friend class Form2;

public:
.
.
.

private:
/* private data here */
}

Then any member of an instance of Form2 (or static members of Form2) should have access to the protected and private data and functional members of Load.

I don't think .net supports 'friend' classes.
