A WinForms VB.Net question...

How do I keep a Child form's MainMenu items separate (and attached to the Child form) rather than appending them to the Parent Form's MainMenu?

(I realise that this will only be feasible with a non-maximised Child form)

You realised correctly ;-),

But you might want to look at the mergetype and mergeorder properties.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemwindowsformsmenuitemclassmergetypetopic.asp

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemwindowsformsmenuitemclassmergeordertopic.asp

These will allow you forinstance, to overrides the mdi parents menu with the child window if the child window is maximized

Thanks.

But is it possible to have the Child Form containing its own Menu?  The Menu item that I want to keep on the Child Form is relevant to the content of the Child Form only, so I want to keep the menu visible on the Child form rather than it moving up to join the Parent Form menu.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

No, I don't think that that is possible. It's there by design

But you can always fake that by building the menu yourself.
