Form show instead of showmodal.

Hi,

I have a mainform called mainForm with a listview on it called lvNotes.
And a second form called StickyNotes. With this code below I can call
for the form StickyNotes, put some text on it and after closing the
StickyNotes a row will be inserted in to the listview lvNotes on the mainForm.

This all works super. But now I want to show multiple stickynotes when I press
on the button.

How can I do that? What do I have to change?

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

Try something like this:
        private void tbNewNote_ItemClick(object sender, ItemClickEventArgs e)
        {
            StickyNotes sticky = new StickyNotes();
            sticky.lblTitle.Text = "";
            sticky.rtbContent.Clear();
            sticky.lblCreation.Text = (DateTime.Now.ToString());
            sticky.FormClosed += new FormClosedEventHandler(sticky_FormClosed);
            sticky.Show();
        }

        void sticky_FormClosed(object sender, FormClosedEventArgs e)
        {
            StickyNotes sticky = (StickyNotes)sender;
            ListViewItem myItem = new ListViewItem(sticky.lblTitle.Text, 0);
            myItem = lvNotes.Items.Add(myItem);
            myItem.SubItems.Add(sticky.rtbContent.Text);
            myItem.SubItems.Add(sticky.lblCreation.Text);
            myItem.Selected = true;
        }

                                            new Form2(),
                                            new Form2(),
                                            new Form2()
                                        };

_forms.ForEach(f=>f.Show());

Open in new window


This will show multiple instances of Form2

Hey BuggyCoder I don't know exactly what to do with your solution.

It have to be like this:

On my mainform I have a button, by pressing on the button everytime
a form appears. On the form is a textbox. So if the form closes
the text of the textbox on the form will be written to the listview on the
main form.

How can I do that?
