Adding an event handler for a control in child form from parent form in C#

You can add event in child form and rise it when text changed. Then create event handler in parent form and change text in parent form.
In child form:

public event EventHandler OnChildTextChanged;
private void textBox1_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if(OnChildTextChanged != null)
       OnChildTextChanged(textBox1.Text, null);

In parent form:

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    ChildForm child = new ChildForm();
    child.OnChildTextChanged += new EventHandler(child_OnChildTextChanged);

void child_OnChildTextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    textBox1.Text = (string)sender;

Hope it helps.
