hope this is the right forum,

In visual Basic I am trying to pass a variable from one form to another, I have no idea how to do it, unless putting it into a public variable (which I really don't want to do), I would like to pass it as you would with a function: ie

functionname(variable1, var2, var3) and so on

I'm sure there is a way to do it with forms:

form1.show(var1, var2, var) but cannot get it to work?

any suggestions? I'm sure it is really easy - but I am a bit slow

cheers
