I have an identity (auto-increment) column in my mssql table, which is also my primary key. I want to use these numbers on my form, such that when I open that form, the auto-increment id will already be displayed on a textbox (so I wont have to type it in anymore). It's like, trying to display the next auto-increment id on form load while no data is entered yet. Like on paper forms where the form numbers are already there before it is even used or filled up. I hope I'm making it clear. Is it possible? How do you do that? I really have no idea how to do it.

Do you mean that when you bring up a blank form (so you can create a new entry) the ID number of the record that will be added is displayed? The answer depends on whether or not there is only one user hitting the database at a time.
