    Two forms


    Hi,
    I have two forms. the one is created from the other:

    Dim frmPicture As Form
    frmPicture = New frmPicture()

    frmPicture.ShowDialog

    My idea is that before showing I want to put a picture in a picturebox on
    the frmPicture form a file.

    frmPicture.pctPicture.Image.FromFile(strFile)

    But I don't have access to it. Tells me that pctPicture is not a member of
    the System.Windows.Forms.Form, which is the absolute true.

    What is the way to do it?

    Thanks
    Max

    If I am understanding your intention I think you can just do the following.

    Dim NewForm As New frmPicture
    NewForm.pctPicture.Image etc etc

    Max: You'll also need to declare pctPicture as Public in frmPicture.

    You need to declare it as Public, I have trouble with that as well.
