i have two forms

Form1 and Form2

Form1 has a panel. It loads form2

Form2 has code like this


Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

'Title of Control1
CType(Me.ParentForm, Form1).control1.Text = "Title bar text"

End Sub

Needless to say this works fine

Here comes the problem:
I added a new form: Form3
also with a panel with Form2 inside

now i have a problem with this CType(Me.ParentForm, Form1).control1.Text


I would also like to have this fixed to accept any future parent form, instead of writing something like

if parentform.name = "form1" then
    CType(Me.ParentForm, Form1).control1.Text = "bla1"
else if parentform.name = "form2" then
   CType(Me.ParentForm, Form2).control1.Text = "bla bla2"
else if .....to infiniti
    CType(Me.ParentForm, FormInfini).control1.Text  = "blablablafiniti"
end if



please help
