How to select a value from a ComboBox / Listbox on the newly opened form (Childform), and send this value immediately on select to the opener parent form (Parent Form)

The clickable button which will open a listbox should be placed next to textbox control(The size of the textbox is large enough to hold it) on parent form. It is required that we use a listbox populated with some values in child form.When the user selects a value(text) in the listbox,

1) the listbox should disappear.

2) The text selected should be automatically inserted into the textbox. (on parent form)

Any alternatives ?

Simple, just add this code in the child form

Private Sub List1_Click()
List1.Visible = False
Form1.Text1.Text = List1.Text
End Sub

List1 is the list in the child form
form1 is the parent forum
text1 is the textbox that will hold the value on the parent form.

Hope it helped.
