MDI form stays ontop but parent is still enabled

I have a MDI form with a child MDI form being displayed by a SDI application.  I have the MDI form ontop of all other forms working fine, but the SDI is still active [enabled] and I don't want the user to be able to close it without closing the MDI form first.

I tried disabling the SDI form before showing the MDI form with the vbModal parameter, then enabling it after the .Show call, but vbModal doesn't seem to work with MDI forms - I've read that too.

How can I get the SDI form to become disabled when the MDI form is active, then get enabled after the user closes the MDI form?

Thanks.

Have you tried this...

In the MDI code:

Sub MDIForm_Load
    'Disable the SDI here
    frmSDIForm.enabled = False
End Sub

Sub MDIForm_UnLoad
    'Enable the SDI here
    frmSDIForm.enabled = True
End Sub
