one module to control another module

I would like to have one module that controls another module.  that is I want to have a list of things and then the user clicks on one of those things I want another module the image module or something that display an image with that thing.

I preferrabely would like to use the modules that come with dotnetnuke. Is there a way to accomplish this (to parameterize a module).

something like the link module but I do not want the navigation to the link to appear on a different page and i still want to have the links available.

Inter module communication between modules in DNN? Nothing built in that I know of (unless they snuck something into DNN3 that I've missed). However it can be done. Kodhedz has a fairly good explanation of how to do it (I think, I've never tried to do it myself).

how about just the regular modules is there one module that display a list of links and let's you click at the links and has a different part where it displays what you have clicked.

The Inter-Module Communication (IMC) system is built into DNN (and has been for some time) but none of the core built in modules currently use it.   The example at kodhedz does give a good example of how to use the built in interfaces however.

You can achieve this by using XMod.

There are a few examples at this link

The module developer guide in the documentation folder gives a very good description and example.

Ive got a problem when I'm trying to use 1 module as module communicator while two others is listening for communicator. The compilation run well but after I load the page contain those 3 modules, I've got this message "The delegate must have only one target." So my conclusion up to now, is that this module communicator only works with only 1 listener.

Is my conclusion right?any suggestion?

Is it true that this IMC only works if we using only 1 communicator and 1 listener at 1 page? coz, i got this message when I tried to implement listener more than 1. 

"The delegate must have only one target."
Can anyone clarify this? Thx

"The module developer guide in the documentation folder gives a very good description and example. "

I would argue strongly against this statement, i think the documentation on IMC in the developers guide is incomplete at best.

The manual describes how not to use it and briefly on what it's methods are.  But where is it.  that example would come in handy right about now.  

One thing that was mentioned was that the data was shared via event bubbling.
Maybe that is the key.

When you finally find the right namespace it is correct.

Could be spelled wrong, use intellisense to verify.
It doesn't give specifics on dnn, and I ultimatley gave up. I could not seem to raise the Event, and would always get an object reference error. I'm using the oldschool URL Parameter method to pass data, ewe.

Navigating from one module to another module
Grettings, I am running into a little situation that I am hoping someone can give me a hand with. Currently I have 2 modules. Module A and Module B. Both consist of the base .ascx page and an edit.ascx page. What I would like to be able to do is have a linkbutton at the bottom of the Module A edit.ascx control, that links to Module B base .ascx control. Then on Module B .ascx you could follow the UI flow to the edit.ascx control of Module B. The problem I am encountering is this: NavigateURL does not seem to handle loading module instances that HAVE a moduledefid ...

accessing one modules data from another module
Hi -Is there an easy way to access the DAL of one module from another module?or, to ask a more direct question:Is it possible to get a list of files uploaded to DNN from the file uploader without going into the DB directly?

Also - is there a decent repository of skins? I have recently installed version 2.0. Sure wish there were more modules ready for it! That would make it much easier to evaluate the program and give recommendations to my boss. The reason there aren't more 2.0 modules yet is becasue it h...
