Hey guys!!

I have a form with a combo box control and a button.  After I make a selection from the comb box I can click the button and it opens another form with the details of the selection from the combo box.

When I delete the details on the second form I want also to delete the text from the combo box.

I have tried a get/set and another that I set the control to Public then open a second instance of the form and delete the text and I can't make either work.

There must be a way to do this!!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jerry

Display the second form with ShowDialog().  In the second form, set DialogResult to OK  or Cancel.

The first form:
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            // ... open up the second form based on the combobox selection ...
            Form2 f2 = new Form2();
            if (f2.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK) // code stops here until f2 is dismissed
            {
                // ... remove the value from the combobox ...
            }
        }
    }

Open in new window

In the second form:
    public partial class Form2 : Form
    {
        public Form2()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void btnConfirm_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.DialogResult = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK;
        }

        private void btnCancel_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.DialogResult = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Cancel;
        }
    }

Open in new window
