VB.NET Pass variable from 2nd form to main form

I am running into an issue where I need to pass value from a 2nd form that I open to my original main form.  What I did was create a lookup form that has a datagridview.  From my main form, I click on a button that would open up the 2nd form.  If I  double click on which ever row from the datagridview on the 2nd form, I want to transfer the ID of that rowindex back to the main form and input that to the txtID.Text from the main form, then close the 2nd form.

I did a bit of research but can't seem to get what I need working.  Can anyone assisst me with some example?

Here's a way ...

' First Form
Public Class Form1
 
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim frm As New Form2
        frm.ShowDialog()
 
        If frm.ID <> 0 Then
            MessageBox.Show(frm.ID.ToString)
        End If
 
        frm.Dispose()
    End Sub
 
End Class
 
 
 
' Second Form
Public Class Form2
 
    Private _ID As Integer
    Public Property ID() As Integer
        Get
            Return _ID
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Integer)
            _ID = value
        End Set
    End Property
 
    ' Close button
    Private Sub btnClose_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnClose.Click
        Me.ID = 123
        Me.Close()
    End Sub
 
End Class
