Disabling MDI child form menus from propagating to parent?

I've got a MDI parent with it's own menu. I have a MDI child that has a menu purely for the purposes of a right-click popup menu.

The problem is, I don't want that menu to propagate to the MDI parent's and replacing it.

Is there any way to do this?


Thanks,
-Jason

I got this problem once, then I deleted the child form
menu, and used a nice API to create menu's on the fly.

I think you can use  popupmenu parentform.menuname too ...
Not sure though.

I that case, you can add your popup to the MDI parent.

Thanks!

That did, indeed, take care of my problem. I didn't even think about referencing it via the parent.

You've got to love Mondays!


Thanks again!
