Displaying a form within a form.

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.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
