When all of MDI childs closed does not Form got the focus? If it does use OnEnter event of form (called onFocussed in TPW days).

It has an onActivate. Beacuse forms don't get focused they get activated.

Try this,

In MDIChilds OnClose Event do this:

procedure TMDIChild.FormClose(...);
begin
  if TMdiMaster(Parent).MDIChildCount = 1 then
     TMdiMaster(Parent).UpdateToolbarAndMenu(Self);
  CanClose := true;
end;

No problem just remove the CanClose! and test it.

Important thing is that you should get the idea. The idea is upon closing each MDICHILD check parent of it and call the UpdateToolAnd.. methods or done any special processing. By this way when the LAST one is closed everything expected to go OK.

Got it? (Not very clever but since you require ANOTHER way)
