You meant to reload data into GridView?

Code on another form should not know nor care about controls on another form. Every form should stand on it's own without other forms manipulating its controls.

But, basically, you have to rebind the grid to the datasource. There is no "refresh" method on the DGV.
These two statements will do the actual trick:


This will do these two things:
(1)Causes your BindingSource on MainForm to rebind itself.
(2)Tells the InvoicesDataGridView to refresh itself

Hope this will help you.
