I have an object that I need to access from two forms.

frmLogin
frmMain

On frmLogin I need to open the connection and validate the user.
On frmmain i will need to work with the methods and events of CmiServer


//frmLogin
frmMain.CmiServer.OpenConnection()


//frmMain
        public static CmiServer CmiServer
        {
            get
            {
                if (_cmiServer == null)
                {
                    _cmiServer = new CmiServer();
                }

                return _cmiServer;
            }
        }


Are there other/better ways to do this?

You really only have two options:
(1) Static members.
(2) Instantiate the class in the first class and then pass a reference to it into the second class.
