Passing parameters between form classes - C#

P: n/a
I'm a rookie at C# and OO so please don't laugh! I have a form
(fclsTaxCalculator) that contains a text box (tboxZipCode) containing a zip
code. The user can enter a zip code in the text box and click a button to
determine whether the zip code is unique. If the zip code is not unique,
another form/dialog is displayed (fclsLookup) - lookup form/dialog. The zip
code is passed to the lookup form/dialog by reference. I then load a
datagrid with the possible matches (i.e. zip, city, county, state, zipid).
When the user clicks the row in the datagrid, I want to pass the zipid back
to the original form/dialog and run a stored procedure. My problem is I do
not know how to get the ZipId back to the fclsTaxCalculator form/dialog.
I've search for examples of this and I've not been able to track one down -
please help!!!

Hello !

There are no stupid questions.

The forms you define in C# always consist of a class. A single form is a
single class. Thus, your problem comes from the interaction between classes.
You already knew this, however.

So, in addition to passing a reference variable to the zip code the user has
entered (the one which you wish to check), pass in another reference to the
ACTUAL zip code returned by the lookup form. Now, when the lookup form is
launched, you use the first reference to pass in the zipcode and initialize
the datagrid to show possible values, and the second reference to pass back
the value which the user clicked on in the datagrid.

Here's the most simplest example I can think of. It's written in C++, but
the language syntax is pretty much similar in C#.

class MyForm1
{
public:
int m_nUsersZipCode;
int m_nDatagridResult;
MyForm2* m_pLookupForm;
};

class MyForm2
{
public:
DWORD ValidateZipCode(int& nRefSource, int& nRefSelected);
};

int main(void)
{
MyForm1 form1;
MyForm2 form2;
form1.Show();
}

// In the ShowLookupForm handler of MyForm1
..
m_pLookupForm->ValidateZipCode( m_nUsersZipCode,
m_nDatagridResult );
..

This would be the most simplistic way to accomplish it. The problem itself
is not C# related by nature, thus it's quite easy to answer it.

Antti,

I really appreciate the feedback. I should have stated the fact that I am
passing two variables by reference but I don't know how to set the variable
that I pass to the second form to the value selected in the second form.
When I try to set the variable. I get a message from the compiler that
states the varaible does not exist in the namespace. My code is below.

I don't think that anyone is going to bite your head off over where to place
an interop question.

I'd suggest you post a _small_ amount of code that exhibits your problem. Is
it a simple issue of data member visibility?

If I have some C++ code and I can successfully call a C# assembly but
cannot
access the variables in the C# assembly, would I post my question here or
in
the C# forum? :D


I don't think that anyone is going to bite your head off over where to place
an interop question.

I'd suggest you post a _small_ amount of code that exhibits your problem. Is
it a simple issue of data member visibility?

P: n/a
Besides the mistake of trying to access the private variables instead of the
accessor methods, I added my DialogLibrary class as a reference to the
project that uses the Windows Form and it compiled/executed and updated the
variables.

I have inherited a huge multi project VS2003 .NET solution:
Two of the projects call the same dialog boxes but have differences within
the classes.
For maintainability and future conversion to VS2005 C# Main GUI I was
creating a C# Windows Form:

1) I finally managed to call the Windows Form.
2) I receive error C2039: 'm_nConnType' : is not a member of
'DialogLibrary::OpenSysbusSocket': see declaration of
'DialogLibrary::OpenSysbusSocket' when I build the solution.
