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

Hi, in my point of view you should check the TextBoxes Regardless of the labels, so put a proper Name for the text boxes and add them to Datagrid by text box name.
I wrote a small code for you and ask me if you had any question.

Private Sub Btn_Add_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Btn_Add.Click
        Dim frm2 As New Form2
'Find The Text Boxes Here
        For Each txtTest As Control In Me.Controls
            If txtTest.GetType().ToString() = "System.Windows.Forms.TextBox" Then
                'Check if it's not empty
                If txtTest.Text <> "" Then
'Make a New Record for DataGrid
                    Dim rw As New DataGridViewRow
'Get the Structure of the DataGrid and set it to New Row
'Put the Data that you want in the right cell
                    rw.Cells(0).Value = txtTest.Text
                    rw.Cells(1).Value = txtTest.Name
'Add row to DataGrid
                End If
            End If
   End Sub

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


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

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

publicSub  Load()
GridView1.DataSource = localds
