This may not be possible, but it would be very handy if I could display a form inside another form.  So I would like the contents (controls) of Form1 and Form2 to show in the main form.

This is the MDI interface, simply create and MDI parent and some MDI child forms and they will appear in the main form.

You do this by creating forms as user controls, instead of normal VB forms.

You can then include the user controls anywhere you'd like ... on a form by themselves, or as a subset of a form with other contents.
