Comments from the Editor
It is hard to believe that yet another week has gone by. It seems like 2007 is flying quicker than previous years. In just a week it will be Christmas Day, and it is just two weeks until 2008.
It has been a great year with lots of big releases. I'll take a look at a few of the big releases for 2007 in one of the upcoming newsletters. I also plan to talk about a lot of other topics that have been a part of recent discussions. These include differences between RIA and Web 2.0, insights on SaaS, and the ideas for some redesign changes around Codeguru.
Are there things you'd like to hear about in 2008? If so, let me know. I believe next year will be a big year for Codeguru. It should include some site usage changes, maybe a few special guests, and lots of articles and great discussions.
Speaking of articles, now is a slower time of year for many people. You might want to consider writing up some of the tips or tricks you learned in 2007 and share them with others around Codeguru. We plan to continue giving someone cash each month, so what better time than now to take a few minutes to see if your tip, trick, or coding sample can snag you an extra $200 US.
Until next week.... Happy Holidays!

- [Updated] Using Delegates to Interchange Information
Between Siblings of a Parent

Discover how to interchange information between sibling forms of a parent form. In many cases, especially in MDI applications, you need to interchange information between child forms that are instantiated by the same parent. In such cases, delegates are a suitable way to exchange information.
