MDIParent Child relationship

Hello Expert, I have a form and my frmMainMenu is the mdiParent, and on the frmMainMenu when i select to open ProjectInfo I make that the child
                                                this.SetMnuProjectInfo(false);
                  ProjectInfo.frmProjectInfo frmProjectInfoGUI = new ProjectInfo.frmProjectInfo();
                  frmProjectInfoGUI.MdiParent = this;
                  frmProjectInfoGUI.Show();
                  this.Focus();
My problem is when i am on my frmProjectInfo and i want to open frmContactInfo from inside that form how can i get it to open inside the mdiParent this is my code to open the other form
                                                              ContactInfo.frmContactInfo frmContactInfoGUI = new ContactInfo.frmContactInfo();
                        Genesis.frmMainMenu afrmMainMenu = new Genesis.frmMainMenu();
                  
                        frmContactInfoGUI.ShowDialog(this) ;
                        FillComboBoxes();
                        if(aProjectInfoPD.GetProjectID() != 0)
                        {
                              modes(true);
                              PopulateContact();
                              LoadInformation();
                        }
the reason i use a showDialog is cause once that form is closed i need to repopulate my comboboxes with the contact that was added any ideas on how i could do this?
Thanks

you could also handle the event of the form frmContactInfoGUI with a function that repopulated the comboboxes ...
                  private void OnContactChange(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
                 FillComboBoxes();
                           if(aProjectInfoPD.GetProjectID() != 0)
                           {
                                 modes(true);
                                 PopulateContact();
                                 LoadInformation();
                           }
        }


                   //when you go to show
                   //instantiate set parent to real parent
                   frm.Closed += new EventHandler(this.OnContactChange) ;
                   frmContactInfoGUI.Show() ;


this will allow it to be shown as a MDI form and trap when the MDI form is closed.
