1.First Set combobox as public of form1
2.Create selectedchanged event of combobox
3In that create object of form2
ex. Form2 f2=new Form2();
3.Assign value of combobox from form1 to form2 combobox
ex. f2.combobox.item.Add(this.combobox.Text);

Well... this was a reformulation of my answer :(
The simplest, but not too elegant way is to make the combobox on form2 public. Look for the "Modifiers" property in the editor, design folder. But be aware that you can access it only if a form of that class is actually instantiated.

The more elegant way is to create a model, and bind the same value to both combo boxes.

Simple create static variable, Assign value in Form1, Go to the Form2 And read static variable value. Thats it!!!! (Only if you do not have any issue with static variable:))

Your question is not a "solution" to someone else's question.

If you want to ask a question, then ASK A QUESTION[^]. But you're going to have to provide a lot more information than you have here if you want anyone to be able to help you.
