Don't have shure but if it is you can do this way ...

In the target form do this:

Public Class Form2

    Private myString As String

    Sub New(ByVal str As String)
        InitializeComponent()

        myString = str
    End Sub

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

End Class

Then when you create a new instance of the form you must fill the string:

Dim frm As New Form2("test")
frm.Show()

You can also add a module and declare the variable as public and then you can use it on all your project.

' In chikd form

Dim m_RecordValue As String

Public ReadOnly Property RecordValue() As String
    Get
        Return m_RecordValue
    End Get
End Property

When you close the childform, you will set m_RecordValue to the value of the added record
and then in main form

Dim frm As New ChikdForm
frm.ShowDialog()
dim retVal As String
retVal = frm.RecordValue

Both Solution Give me very good Idea , But the second solution of Priest04 , What I Need in this moment.

I think for another solution like this :
  1- first add public variable within the MainForm of the projcet itself as = nothing
      Public ReturnedFormString As String = Nothing
   2- second , in the called form itself within Load event , set also the value = nothing
      mainform.ReturnedFormString = Nothing
   3- In any place within the called (child form) set the value you want
      for example
      when save the new data set
      mainform.ReturnedFormString = ComboBox.text
   4- use this value within the caller form if you wish .
       dim str as string = mainform.ReturnedFormString

That is not a very good practice, it makes code maintaining very hard. Sometime in the future you will not know in what places you set this value, whicih could cause logical errors, and they are hardest to solve.

Thats right. So that I reset this value to nothing in loading the form.

Nevertheless, its the same. Good practice is to have some property that will return value to the form that needs this value.
