I have MDI parent. I am opening a new child MDI in that. and I have next button in it. when user press next button i want that child to close and open a new child based on the close child. I tried showdialog(); but thats doesn't work in MDI parent. Is there any event handling i can set up for MDI container so that way i can catch when the child window is being closed.
Thank You all.

there is an event form_Closing
try to put Following lines in the FormClosing of mdi child

// Create a new form to represent the child form.
 Form2 child = new Form2();
   // Make the new form a child form.
 child.MdiParent = this.MdiParent ;
   // Display the child form.
 child.Show();

if that wont work, put these lines in the Form_Close Event


**I dont have VS.NET here... so i couldnt test it..

well

duhh !!

we already tried that
that does not work.

however we found out a way to do it

i will request a closure.

just for your info
what we did was
for the MDI Parent
the on Activated event
would check the value in Clipboard and get the form name to be loaded

once found
will load that form.
