    Re: Call a function on another form and passing a string

    There are various ways of doing this.

    Public variable
    priviate property on 2nd userform
    reading the information from the 1st userform

    Can you post what you currently have
    Cheers

    I have a button called Connect

    He gives an error on fMainForm.AddSelected Selectedserver.Text I tried using call but that doesn't work also.

    As can be seen their is more on both forms but as in my previous thread you can't use that code because of a missing dll.

    I now also have a Module1 added in which i make my mainform public or atleast i try too....

    After I added the module1 I got a different error namely error 91 that the with statement isn't specified.
