This simple program will notify the other form or the calling form for the changes made from other form.

Example scenario.

You have a Point of Sale application where you have to receive payment. You need to open another form to input money you received from a customer. This could be in a form of a dialog form. After you close the dialog form the calling form will be update say for example the Total TextBox.

This simple source code is part of the my Point of Sale which I'm currently working in VB.NET 2008.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
