Clear Public Property VB.NET

Hi I have an application where I am using Public Property x As String to carry information from one form to another. The issue is when I get back to the beginning it is remembering the values instead of accepting new ones. Is there a way to clear all values of Public Properties on the last form?

What do you mean with 'when I get back to the beginning?'

I have 7 forms. Step 1, 2, 3 etc. So I could set a Public Property at Step 2 then carry all the way to Step 7 however when I press Finish at Step 7 the application comes back to Step 1 again.

I'm still confused - are we talking about 7 different forms or 7 instances of the same form? And is the property defined on the form or in a separate class? If we have 7 instances, then each instance will have it's 'own' property x and thus it's own value. The fact it is 'public' just means it's accessible from 'outside'. If you need the 7 forms to store in a common variable (and thus overwrite) you could either carry it over when the form gets closed, or you could created an application wide (global) variable. In this case you add a module and define a public string there.
Hope this helps a bit.

Hey guys, thanks for all your responses. I just found my error.  I was running my code under Form_Load instead of Form_Activated http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.form.load(v=vs.110).aspx showed me that the Load is only for the first time instead of every time the Form runs.

The erroneous code was

Public Class Step_1
    Public Property ProductType As String

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        ProductType = TextBox1.Text
        Me.Hide()
        Step_2.Show()
    End Sub
End Class

Public Class Step_2
    Public Property ProductType As String

    Private Sub Step_2_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
	Label10.Text = Step_1.ProductType

	Me.Hide()
        Step_1.Show()

    End Sub
End Class

Open in new window


Hopefully that make sense
