Visual Studio 2008 (VB) solution design question concerning Datasets.

johbru asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
My solution contains two forms. The main form uses a dataset which contains all tables needed by both forms. I want to add a second form which will be accessed by pressing control button on main form. Second form will contain a datagrid with information from table in dataset on first form. When I bind the datagridview to the dataset, a dataset is created on the second form along with tableadapter and binding source. This dataset appears to be the same as define on my first form. Will this second dataset on second form double information held in memory? How do I avoid this if it does. I'm new to Visual Studio and VB 2008.
