*At you Form1 write this codes:

private static Form1 sForm = null;
public static Form1 Instance()
if (sForm == null)
{ sForm = new Form1 (); }
return sForm;

protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
if (disposing && (components != null))
sForm = null;

*In the MDI Form button for showing a Form1 write this codes:

Form sForm = new Form1.Instance();

Example 2:

-Create a MDI Form and a Form1.

*Write this codes at your MDI Form:

How to Pass values to another Form

Ok. Lets say you have 2 Forms. Form1 and Form2.
In Visual Basic 6 this is simple codes with 1 line only: Form2.text1.text = Form1.text1.text

Thats so Simple.

But in C# not 1 line code. I have 2 ways to get a text from Form1/Form2.


1.) Goto Form1 then Double Click it. At the code type this.

public string CaptionText
{get {return textBox1.Text;}
set { textBox1.Text = value; }}

note: the value of your textbox1.text = sayre;

2.) Goto Form2 then Double click it. At the code type this.

// At your command button In Form2
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
Form1 sForm1 = new Form1();
textBox1.Text = sForm1.CaptionText;


1.) Goto Form2 then Double click it. At the code type this.

public Form2(string sTEXT)
textBox1.Text = sTEXT;

2.) Goto Form1 then Double click it. At the code type this.
//At your command button in Form1
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
Form2 sForm = new Form2(textBox1.Text);
