I havn't been able to find anything on the web which actually applies to what i'm trying to do yet.
I have form1 which has 2 methods. These methods are the same but two versions, one with 3 variables in its parameter (?), one with 4. It is necessary for my project for it to be a polymorphic override type thing so i'm keeping them in the same form.
On form2 I use the 3 variable parameter.
On form3 I use the 4 variable parameter one (in order to do a very similar piece of working)
BUT I can't work out how to actually do this, how to reference it. I was told once that a form is essentially a class but I can't access the different form's method by saying i.e. firstForm.MyMethod(a, b, c); I also tried using the static reference(?) but that also didn't work and I'm not supposed to use a static method here.
I've tried putting: public firstForm(); at the top where i've observed other sample code on the web, that doesn't seem to work. I can't understand whether it's through delegates as i've also read but I don't really 'get' them tbf.
Is it possible to do what i'm trying to do. If anyone could even suggest a phrase i'm happy to do the googling but really I'm going round in circles.
