Dear Experts,

I have a main form named mainForm with a listview on it, and a toolbar-button
for calling a second form named StickyNotes. On the StickyNotes I have a txtbox
and a close button.

What I would like is when a user clicks on the toolbar-button to open form StickyNotes
and put some text into the textbox and the presses the close-button. A new row must
be inserted into the listview that resides on the mainForm with the text of the textbox
into the column lvcCaption.

As you can see I have done it myself only I don't how to get to the listview on the mainForm
from the StickyNotes form!

How can I do that?

Who knows the answer and is willing to help me?

Greetings, Peter Kiers
private void StickyNotes_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            txtCaption.Text = "";
            rtbContent.Clear();
            lblCreation.Text = (DateTime.Now.ToString());
        }

        private void StickyNotes_FormClosed(object sender, FormClosedEventArgs e)
        {
            ListViewItem myItem = new ListViewItem(txtCaption.Text, 0);
            myItem = lvNotes.Items.Add(myItem);  <=============================
            myItem.SubItems.Add(rtbContent.Text);
            myItem.SubItems.Add(lblCreation.Text);
        }

Hi Peter,

you could expose the values you need as public properties of the StickyNotes class. In your StickyNotes_FormClosed method assign the proper values to these properties and once you are back inside your mainForm you can read the values of the properties to create a new entry in your ListView.

Hope that helps,
Frank

I had this code before, for using a single form.
But now I want to make use of multiple forms.

Peter
private void tbNewNote_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
                frmNote.txtCaption.Text = "";
                frmNote.rtbContent.Clear();
                frmNote.lblCreation.Text = (DateTime.Now.ToString());
                if (frmNote.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK)
                {
                    ListViewItem myItem = new ListViewItem(frmNote.txtCaption.Text, 0);
                    myItem = lvNotes.Items.Add(myItem);
                    myItem.SubItems.Add(frmNote.rtbContent.Text);
                    myItem.SubItems.Add(frmNote.lblCreation.Text);
                }
        }
        //*------------------------------------------------------------*//
        private void lvNotes_MouseDoubleClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        {
            frmNote.txtCaption.Text = lvNotes.SelectedItems[0].Text;
            frmNote.rtbContent.Text = lvNotes.SelectedItems[0].SubItems[1].Text;
            frmNote.rtbContent.SelectionStart = 0;
            frmNote.lblCreation.Text = lvNotes.SelectedItems[0].SubItems[2].Text;
            if (frmNote.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK)
            {
                lvNotes.SelectedItems[0].Text = frmNote.txtCaption.Text;
                lvNotes.SelectedItems[0].SubItems[1].Text = frmNote.rtbContent.Text;
            }
        }
        //*------------------------------------------------------------*//

What do mean when you say "multiple forms"? Do you want to display more than one StickyNotes form at once?
What's wrong with the code in your last post?
