Abstract
This short sample demonstrates how to let one form in a Windows Forms application know when data in another form got changed. To implement this behavior I’ll show you how to create an event on Form2 and how to subscribe to this event on Form1 using the Handles keyword. The C# source code uses delegates to implement the aforementioned behavior.

Prerequisites
The examples were created using Visual Basic 2008 Express but do also apply to older versions of Visual Studio. Even though this concept is demonstrated in Windows Forms the same pattern can be used in WPF.

Enjoy!
