This is my problem. I am trying to make a search feature that searches through a grid for certain types of text. I have a separate form ( like that of IE or VS.Net's Search/Find feature that when I click search it will find the string in the grid and put a box around that field. [b]What is the proper way to access the other form that the grid component is on?[/b] So far I included the header file in my search form and used the global form's name to access the component. But when I do this it throws a runtime exception and crashes.
