I have an application in which I have an MDI child form.
I want to be able to place the child form in the centre of the MDI window. Currently I am using the Top and Left properties of the child to do this but unfortunately the child window is realised before the positioning takes place because the VB help says that you cannot hide a MDI child form.

Does anyone know of a way to make the child form appear in the MDI window without this "flickering" effect ?
