How can I use add() method from the Form2 to listBox in another form?

P: n/a
Hi

I have a problem with using listBox1. I have a two forms form1 and
form2. In form1 are controls listBox1, textBox1 and button witch
creating object of class Form2. In class Form2 I create a pointer to
object of class Form1. I don't known how to use method add(), where
can I find it. From Form1 I can add value like this this->listBox1-
>Items[1]->Add("aaaa"); but from Form2 when I try to get this method
I cant find it. I have textBox1 on Form1 and I can change text in this
control like this fm1->Controls["textBox1"]->Text = "text in box"; .
But Text is property of class not method like add().

The controls listBox1 and textBox1 are PRIVATE to class Form1. Hence their
members are inaccessible to instances of class Form2. From inside the
definition of Form1 all its controls are accessible, private or not, so
within Form1 they are 'findable'.

The solution to making the controls you want in Form1 accessible to Form2
(and hence their public methods, such as Add), is making them PUBLIC within
the definition of class Form1 or by writing methods in class Form1 that
expose them in a second-hand way.

Woops, my bad. Just noticed you also attached a listing, and indeed the
controls in question are defined as public in Form1.

I have access to form because I can change value of textBox: fm1-
>Controls["textBox1"]->Text;
But I don't know how I can use method add() from another form fm1-

when I try do this using pointer I cant find it : fm1-
>Controls["listBox1"]-(what I mast do next??), there is not option
"Items".

I have access to form because I can change value of textBox: fm1-
>Controls["textBox1"]->Text;
But I don't know how I can use method add() from another form fm1-
>Controls["listBox1"]->... what is next ?????
I tray do this similar like this->listBox1->Items->Add("aaaa"); But
when I try do this using pointer I cant find it : fm1-
>Controls["listBox1"]-(what I mast do next??), there is not option
"Items".

Woops, my bad. Just noticed you also attached a listing, and indeed the
controls in question are defined as public in Form1.

The controls listBox1 and textBox1 are PRIVATE to class Form1. Hence their
members are inaccessible to instances of class Form2. From inside the
definition of Form1 all its controls are accessible, private or not, so
within Form1 they are 'findable'.
The solution to making the controls you want in Form1 accessible to Form2
(and hence their public methods, such as Add), is making them PUBLIC
within the definition of class Form1 or by writing methods in class Form1
that expose them in a second-hand way.

Hi
I have a problem with using listBox1. I have a two forms form1 and
form2. In form1 are controls listBox1, textBox1 and button witch
creating object of class Form2. In class Form2 I create a pointer to
object of class Form1. I don't known how to use method add(), where
can I find it. From Form1 I can add value like this this->listBox1-
Items[1]->Add("aaaa"); but from Form2 when I try to get this method
I cant find it. I have textBox1 on Form1 and I can change text in this
control like this fm1->Controls["textBox1"]->Text = "text in box"; .
But Text is property of class not method like add().
How can I use add() method from the Form2 to listBox in another form?
