I was wondering if someone can give me a tip on creating custom dialog boxes. I need to create a search dialog box in which a user can input some information that will then be used to populate a grid. The user can then double click a cell and have the value returned to the originating form. Creating the dialog box itself I can do I just don’t know how to return the value to the form that the dialog box was launch from. I have found some tips in books but they deal with a one to one relationship of form and dialog box, my problem is this dialog box can be launch from any number of different forms.

Thanks in advance.

in a module declare a public variable as your dialog box then when you call it, just make a new instance of your dialogbox object. then to access a value from your dialogbox it's simply mydialog.textbox1 or a variable (gotta be public variable though) to get the value or whatever
