Visual Basic, Open Form based on row value

Hi Everyone,

I have an interface that looks at related rows from different tables. Basically, it has a form/sub-form relationship.

The interface allows them to select a single row from a Datagridview. What I want, is for a second form to open based on the row selection in the first form. It would open the same row in a second form that looks at just that table. (The primary key is: GoalRowID). Also, the row in the second form contains more columns for the table.

Here is some of my incomplete code:
    Private Sub EditRowButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles EditRowButton.Click

        Dim RecordIDString As String

        If  DataGridView1.SelectedRows.Count > 1 Then
            MessageBox.Show("You can only select one row at a time")

        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window

In the else part, you need to get the primary key ID from selected row using code like below

Dim ID as integer = Datagridview1.SelectedRows(0).Cells("GoalRowID").Value


Form2.GoalRowID = ID

You will need to declare GoalRowID as a public property on Form2 so you can pass it from form1. Then in form2 load, use that ID to load data from DB.
