Referencing a Mdi Parent Form
Posted on 2004-10-01
I am trying to change a statusBar at the bottom of my Parent Form in vb.net
Have 1 MdiParent form and several Child forms.
The MdiParent form is setup in vb.net as the "StartUp object". Therefore, you don't need to create an instance of the form, whereas with the mdi child forms you create an instance of the form, and then show that form as below
Dim m_Frm_Search As New Frm_Search
To reference this form you simply m_Frm_Search.whatever
I cannot seem to get the reference to the controls on the Mdi Parent main form.
Can anybody help??
