I need to choose at runtime which form I'll pass, but with this code gives me error "SaveDoc is not member of system.windows.forms"

Dim Myform as new Form
If Plataform = "MOB" Then
           myForm =  FrmDocMobile
Else
           myForm = FrmDoc
End If

       
If myForm.SaveDoc(TbImp) Then

......

end if

you need to create an interface (like IForm) that both frmDocMobile and frmDoc will implement. then you declare MyFrom as IForm and you will be able call the SaveDoc method.

I like emoreau's answer and think that's the best approach.  You can also use Reflection to execute the method.  *If the method is Public then you can use the legacy CallByName() method.
