Depending on what it is you are trying to achieve, you would probably just be better of passing the object to the second form in its constructor.

As long as the object is declared publically you could use:

form1.objectname in form2.

This is not in anyway the recommended way of accomplishing this.  Carls suggestion is more accurate from a programming standpoint.

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion. Also I have a minor to ask. In the form1, I have define  
a textbox, right after the Initialization, I try copy the content of object to textbox.txt but
the compiler complains that textbox is not defined. I don't understand. Please help.
Thanks,
JT

Right after initialization where? As long as it is after the call to InitializeComponent() it should be ok.

Hi,

In the form:

 static void Setup()
{
   this.textbox1.Text = "testing";   <--- compiler complains
}
 public Initialization()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            Setup();
         }

JT

It will. The TextBox is an instance member of the Form, you cannot access it from a static method.
