How do you load a form into a MDI form and not have it open in the upper lefthand corner of the MDI form. Would like it to open in the center. In the form layout window I both forms in the center. The MDI Properties "Window State" is set to 2-Maximized.

You have to position it manually. This can be done in the Load event or where ever else youd like to put it.

Esentially this code in the child forms Load event:

Me.Top = (MDIForm1.ScaleHeight - Me.Height) / 2
Me.Left = (MDIForm1.ScaleWidth - Me.Width) / 2
