Iterate through the MDIChildren array looking for the caption that you want and then activate the form:

FOR n := 0 TO (MDIChildCount - 1)
DO
  IF MDIChildren[n].Caption = sFindName
  THEN
    MDIChildren[n].BringToFront;

See this code:

procedure TForm1.Display1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Cap: string;
  i: Integer;
begin
  Cap:= InputBox('', '', '0');
  for i:= 0 to Form1.ComponentCount - 1 do
    if Form1.Components[i] is TForm then
      if  (Form1.Components[i] as TForm).Caption = Cap then
        (Form1.Components[i] as TForm).SetFocus;

end;


Form1 is the MIDI form
Form2 is the child form

Cap the caption that you want it's Form to be activated.
