MDI forms can't be Modal

In the following code "frmMain" is a MDI form. Since MDI forms can't be Modal, the execution of the code will continue to "GlobalErrorHandlerDestroy" and deactivate
my error handler as quickly as it has been activated. Is there any workaround? In other words, I only want "GlobalErrorHandlerDestroy" to be exexuted when the
program is being terminated (fMain being closed).

Public Sub Main()
Const csSUBNAME As String = "main"
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

    GlobalErrorHandlerCreate
   
    Set fMain = New frmMain
       
    fMain.Show  '(VBModal can be used here)
 
    GlobalErrorHandlerDestroy
   
Exit Sub
ErrorHandler:
    If go_Err Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox "Could not initialise error handler.", vbCritical
    Else
        If go_Err.ErrReport(Err, Erl, csMODULENAME, csSUBNAME) Then Resume
    End If
End Sub

One way would be to create another function and call it from frmMain when it is being closed....

Why not set frmMain as your startup form.  Then create your error handler in MDIForm_Load and destroy it in MDIForm_Unload?
