say you have a button btnSendValuesToForm1...
here will be the code to displau the textbox2 value in textbox1 of form1

onclick="javascript:parent.document.getElementById('txtbox1').value = document.getElementById('txtbox2').value;window.close();return false;"

if its a server side control then instead of onclick you put onClientClick...which will generate teh onclick event for that button...

The click event for your Form2 button should be somthing like:

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
Form1.TextBox1.Text = Me.TextBox2.Text
Me.Close()
End Sub
You can refer to Form1, in this case, by its class name in VB.NET.
