VB - Return Val from Frm as Function

How can you return the value of a (sub)form to another form as a function?
My sub form is a similar to a "file list" form.
On my main form, it runs the subs and if can't find a file it calls the sub
form for user input.
My code will be something like:

Sub MainForm
'do stuff
If FileExist(sFile ) = false Then
sFile= ??'result of sub form
End If
'do more stuff with sFile
End Sub

You can add a public value into that form.
then:

obj.ShowDialog
sFile=obj.value name

I get an error, Object doesn't support the method or property. I'm using VB.

How are you calling it? If you add a function or sub or property to
the form class, you can access it from an instance of the class.

Dim frm As New MyFormClass

sFile = frm.SomeFunctio nInMyFormClass

....

If the "sub form" is a modal dialog, just pass a ref parameter via the
constructor.
e.g.,
Public Sub New(ByRef sFile As String)
InitializeCompo nent()
Me.ShowDialog()
sFile = m_sFile 'set from elsewhere on form before closing
End Sub

hello all, I want to create a function that returns the first element of the Array that is input to it. However, the Input Array can be an Array of points, double, or anyother type, which means the return type of the function depends on the type of the objects the Input array holds. I can have the return type as Object, but it has problems like late binding and more importantly the client has to always Cast it. For example. class...
