Wait... Is your name Caroline M or is it @Rinaldo Meneses Costa ? Your question and phrasing is exactly the same as this other thread as well as his other thread, down to the "I need the code in C#".

In general, you don't move or copy picture boxes between forms. You copy the data that is being displayed by the picture boxes between the forms.

Please read (or re-read as the case maybe) @jmcilhinney response to one of the other gimme-the-codez threads:

At least this question is of better quality than the other, but if you are the same person then you should have simply added the extra information to that thread. If you are a different person then I can only assume that you are part of the same programming class but you, at least, seem to be putting a bit more effort in that your classmate.

What you actually want to move between forms isn't really relevant to the principle. Data is data and moving data between forms is basically the same no matter what that data is. You should understand the principle first, then you can apply that to any forms and any data. Just in case you are a different person, I will provide a link here to my blog post that explains and demonstrates the principle:


That is part 3 and contains the most important information, but you probably ought to read at least part 2 as well, which provides a quick and dirty option for contrast. Part 1 might be worth read too, but it uses VB-specific functionality, so might just confuse the issue. You can simulate that functionality in C# but, to be frank, I wouldn't recommend doing so.
