C# Panel Issue

P: 384
I have a form called frmMain and it calls a function in DBQueries.cs, there is a panel created in the DBQueries class and i need to add it to a panel that already exists in the frmMain, i just can't figure out how to reference the panel in frmMain??

panRecentList is the panel on frmMain and this code is in DBQueries, how do i reference the last like of the code here??
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Label error = new label();
  2. error.Text = "Unable to retrieve recent list.";
  3. panRecentList.Controls.Add(error);

Whatever function in dbqueries.cs that frmMain calls, have return a Panel object as its return parameter.

Nice one, i got the panel being returned, next little thing is i have this code.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. label.Text = "ERROR: Unable to retrieve recent list.";
  2. panel.Controls.Add(label);
But only 'ERROR: Unable' is being displayed on the panel? I have the panel width set to 659!??

When you created the Label object, did you set the Location and Size proeprties?
