You show only code for the MainForm here. You should edit this to show the code where the two other Forms are created, then move this code into your original question, and properly format it with CodeProject's editor.

What Form creates the instance of FormC: FormA, or FormB ?

"i want to disable a button on form c when form b is clicked"

Do you mean when the user clicks anywhere on FormB's area, or do you mean when the user clicks on some specific Control on FormB ?

1 solution

Form a could expose a (read-only) property stating if button on form c should be disabled or not.
