Need to move SDI parent when MDI form is moved

My application is SDI, but I call a MDI form with a MDI child.

If I move the MDI form, the SDI form (main application) doesn't move.  Is there a way to move the forms together?

Thanks.

You can subclass the MDI form and trap the WM_MOVING message.  This message fires AS the form is moving, giving you a RECT structure with the forms current position.  You can use this information to move the SDI form as the MDI form moves.

The technique would be very similar to the solution I posted here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_21141584.html

You probably would not want the SWP_NOREDRAW flag in the SetWindowPos call if your SDI form is visible though.
