I am working on MDI application. In which I want to make use of modal froms in the place of messgae boxes as I shouldn't use message boxes in my application. Problem is I will be using dual monitor systems, When I call the form it is diplayed some where else when the application is on other screen. how can I make the form to be visible in the application window only, means in the centre of the child form which called it.

What version of VB are you using?  If it's version 5 or 6, you can use StartUpPosition property of the form.  Set it to 1 (CenterOwner), then display the form with

    frmModal.show vbModal, frmMdiChild.hwnd

If you're in VB version 3 or 4, you need to get the coordinates of the child window withing the mdi form, translate them into screen coordinates and then figure out the position for your modal form.
