Hi all

I am using pictureBox control on Mdi parent form. But whenever I load child
forms into mdi form they get hidden behind picture box control.

is there any way that i can see the image in picture box as well see the child form?

So the picture box control is on the parent form? Please include the code you're currently using in the parent form, and the child form.  Thanks!

Actually, if you put any control on the MDI parent form, it will apear above the MDI children  Quite annoying...
