the items in the listview should be display in the textboxes in the other form whenever i click select data

help please...

An easy way is to create an event in the form your selected the item from and handling the event in the form you want to receive the item from


In class lstEmployee

Public Event DataSelected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ListViewItem)

When you selected the data raise the event.

RaiseEvent DataSelected(Me, ListViewItem)

In the form you want to receive the Item

Sub New()

    ' This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
    InitializeComponent()

    ' Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call.
    AddHandler myLstEmployeeClass.DataSelected, AddressOf lstEmployee_DataSelected

End Sub

Private Sub lstEmployee_DataSelected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ListViewItem)
        'Heres the listview item
End Sub

the items in the listview should be display in the textboxes in the other form whenever i click select data

See if this helps.

Private Sub ListView2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ListView2.Click
        If Not ListView2.SelectedItems.Count = 0 Then '// check if item is selected.
            With ListView2.SelectedItems.Item(0)
                Form2.TextBox1.Text = .Text '// column 1.
                Form2.TextBox2.Text = .SubItems(1).Text '// column 2.
                Form2.TextBox3.Text = .SubItems(2).Text '// column 3.
                Form2.TextBox4.Text = .SubItems(3).Text '// column 4.
                '// etc...
            End With
            'Form2.ShowDialog()
        End If
    End Sub

Form2 has 4 TextBoxes for the first few Columns.

Adding more TextBoxes and using the "ListView2.SelectedItems.Item(0).SubItems(#).Text" will get your TextBoxes loaded with the SelectedItem's values.

employeeform.dtbday.Text = Format(CDate(("Birthday").ToString), "MM/dd/yyyy")


Conversion from string "Birthday" to type 'Date' is not valid.

employeeform.dtbday.Text = Format(CDate(("Birthday").ToString), "MM/dd/yyyy")
Conversion from string "Birthday" to type 'Date' is not valid.

employeeform.dtbday.Text = Format(CDate((ListView2.SelectedItems.Item(0).SubItems(4).Text).ToString), "MM/dd/yyyy")
