If choose MDI design mode (in the advantage setting), we may find a container holding a form in design time and it will disapear in run time (I am not saying the MDI form).

I remember I never use that comtainer. What is that for?

It allows you to see the real look of your window.

Did you ever work with VB4 (and before)? In those version, we didn't have the container form. If we had set the MaxButton, the MinButton, the ControlBox properties at design, we were not able to see the result until run-time. Now we have the immediate look.
