Using SetParent

Hello,

I have a MDI form that should contain
inside other forms.
When I'm opening another form, and make
SetParent to the opened form, two strange things happened :
1. When I click on the main form the    toolbar of the main form is disppears.

2. When I'm moving one of the form I opened inside, draging it with the mouse, there is a gap between the place of the pointer and the place of the draged form.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks.

If these other forms are forms in the same app as the MDI, then instead of using SetParent, why not just set their MDIChild property to true?

The other forms are part of ActiveX DLL
that i'm using.

Instead of doing a setparent from form to form, Create a "parent" form with a frame control or a picture box control.  Then your child form in your AX Dll should have a corresponding frame or picturebox control.  Then call setparent from the frame or picturebox control.  This will work, trust me :-)
