I have a form with textboxes in it.  I have a separate class where I need to reference those textboxes.  I have tried everything I can think of and nothing seems to work.

What's the correct way to do this?

Hi,

You shouldn't mix up logic in class with GUI elements.

The best way is to make 2 methods in code behind in the from:

void BindTextboxesData()
{
// set here textboxes values from your class data.
}

void GetTexboxesData()
{
// get textboxes values and set to your class properties
}
