MDI Child Form & Parent Form Menu Options
Posted on 2005-04-18
I have a dropdown menu on my MDI parent form which is visible across the top of the form. I also created a menu on one of my MDI children forms. The child menu is hidden and activated with a right click on certain controls. However, when i show the child form with the hidden menu, my parent menu is not visible. Is there any way to resolve this? My first thought is to put all of the hidden menu options from the child form on the menu currently on the parent form. There are many many options and I was hoping to not have to re-key them all.
Any other ides how menu's on a MDI parent form and MDI child form can co-exist. I noticed the negotiate menu property but this seems to apply to something else.
