Use GUISwitch to make the operations act on the Child GUI, then use GUICtrlSetData to change text of the Label

My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.

Could you do me a little quick script example?

#include 

_Main()

Func _Main()

;Initialize variables
Local $GUIWidth = 250, $GUIHeight = 250
Local $ParentWin, $ParentWin_Pos, $ChildWin, $msg

;Create main/parent window
$ParentWin = GUICreate("Parent GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight)
$Label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 1", 30, 40, 131, 21, 0x1000)
$Label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 2", 30, 110, 131, 21, 0x1000)

;Save the position of the parent window
$ParentWin_Pos = WinGetPos($ParentWin, "")
;Show the parent window/Make the parent window visible
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

;Create child window and add the parameter to make it the child of the parent window
$ChildWin = GUICreate("Child GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight, $ParentWin_Pos[0] + 100, $ParentWin_Pos[1] + 100, -1, -1, $ParentWin)
$Label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 1", 30, 40, 131, 21, 0x1000)
$Label_2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label 2", 30, 90, 131, 21, 0x1000)
$Combo_2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 30, 60, 130, 21)
$Combo_3 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 30, 110, 130, 21)
GUICtrlSetData($Combo_2, "Item1|Item2|Item3|Item4|Item5")
$button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Update (Set Labels)", 30, 200, 130, 20)



;Show the child window/Make the child window visible
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

;Switch to the parent window
GUISwitch($ParentWin)

;Loop until:
;- user presses Esc when focused to the parent window
;- user presses Alt+F4 when focused to the parent window
;- user clicks the close button of the parent window
While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
;When button is pressed, label text is changed
;to combobox value
Case $msg = $button1
$data = GUICtrlRead($Combo_2)
GUICtrlSetData($Label_1, $data)
EndSelect
WEnd
EndFunc ;==>_Main

You're reusing the variable names for the second GUI's labels, you're destroying any link back to the first set of labels by reusing them. Change the label variable names in one of the GUI's and update the correct labels with the GUICtrlSetData.

Seriously? You can't figure out what I meant when I said that you can't reuse the variable name $Label_1 for 3 different labels and expect the code to work? Rename 2 of those variables to anything else, as long as they aren't renamed to the same name. Then make sure your GUICtrlSetData is using the variable that is assigned to the correct label you want to update the contents of.

You should use the advanced mode of GUIGetMsg to avoid any further errors,

look at the function in the help file.

Example

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

_Main()

Func _Main()

;Initialize variables
Local $GUIWidth = 250, $GUIHeight = 250
Local $ParentWin, $ParentWin_Pos, $ChildWin, $msg

;Create main/parent window
$ParentWin = GUICreate("Parent GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("N/A", 30, 40, 131, 21, 0x1000)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("N/A", 30, 110, 131, 21, 0x1000)

;Save the position of the parent window
$ParentWin_Pos = WinGetPos($ParentWin, "")
;Show the parent window/Make the parent window visible
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

;Create child window and add the parameter to make it the child of the parent window
$ChildWin = GUICreate("Child GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight, $ParentWin_Pos[0] + 100, $ParentWin_Pos[1] + 100, -1, -1, $ParentWin)
$Label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("N/A", 30, 40, 131, 21, 0x1000)
$Label_2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("N/A", 30, 90, 131, 21, 0x1000)
$Combo_2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 30, 60, 130, 21)
$Combo_3 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 30, 110, 130, 21)
GUICtrlSetData($Combo_2, "50|49|48|47|46")
GUICtrlSetData($Combo_3, "50|49|48|47|46")
$button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Update (Set Labels)", 30, 200, 130, 20)



;Show the child window/Make the child window visible
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

;Switch to the parent window
GUISwitch($ParentWin)

;Loop until:
;- user presses Esc when focused to the parent window
;- user presses Alt+F4 when focused to the parent window
;- user clicks the close button of the parent window
While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg(1)
Switch $msg[1]
Case $ChildWin
;ChildWin MsgLoop

Switch $msg[0]
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
;When button is pressed, label text is changed
;to combobox value
Case $button1
$data = GUICtrlRead($Combo_2)
;~  GUICtrlSetData($Label_1, $data)
GUICtrlSetData($Label1, $data)

$data = GUICtrlRead($Combo_3)
;~  GUICtrlSetData($Label_2, $data)
GUICtrlSetData($Label2, $data)
EndSwitch

EndSwitch
WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_Main
