Hi, I have eight textboxes and corresponding labels on one form and one button. i have another form with a datagridview. On the click of the button on form1 i want to pass the content of the textboxes and corresponding labels' text into the datagridview on form2 only for those textboxes which are not empty. I would greatly appreciate a help in this matter in the form of syntax since i am a beginner in vb.net

Note: Its a vb.net windows application

Or you can make a dataset in Form1 and Initialize Form2 with this dataset and load it.

Ex:

In Form1.
Add up all rows to dataset
Dim f2 As New Form2()
f2.Init(ds)
f2.show()

In Form2
Dim localds As DataSet
Public Sub Init(byVal ds As DataSet)
{
localds  = ds
}

publicSub  Load()
{
GridView1.DataSource = localds
Gridview1.DataBind()
}
