You dont have to add it to the menu with an MDI menu.
In the Menu Editor, Create a menu item as such ...
Caption = Window
Name   = mnuWindow

Then tick the WindowList checkbox (its the checkbox on the right under the NegotiatePosition combobox. Now when ever a child form in visible in the mdi form, it will be added to this menu item.

What I am wondering do I have a option in not showing certain forms in that window?

Thank you .. and how that name work?

is it the form name? or the form caption?

and also when I loaded my mdiform, under window, I have check mark and "1"... what is that? is it one of my form loaded? I do not recall any of my form name with "1"

Thank you again.

The check mark shows the form that currently has focus.
The "1" shows that that is the topmost form ie, form 1 will show above form 2 if they overlap.

No, all the child forms that are currenlty visible will be there. Why would you want only the active form to be in the list ?
