Default Passing Values from a Form to another


I have two forms, I am passing a value from an on click sub procedure that creates and shows a form to the form that is called but I am unsuccessful.

Do I have to create the form in the on click procedure using the new form and pass it to a procedure within that new form or can I pass it another way?

(Using VB6)

Thanks in advance

You question is a bit vague but I believe your problem could be solved with the use of a global variable. The way I do this is to create a seperate module for my globals and assign their values when I need them .. like this.


Public gmyGlobal as DataType (whatever it needs to be string, integer, ect)

Private Sub Command1_Click()

   gmyGlobal = Value

End Sub

If you do it this way the value will be retained even if you unload the initial form. You do have to keep in mind that the global variable will hold the value you assign it until you either reassign it or end the program. My point there is you always need to be aware of it's value when using it in multiple places throughout your application or you may get some unexpected results.

Hope this helps.
