VB6: Windowlist and Form captions

smiley_strat asked
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have an MDI form with a Windows menu, in which the Windowlist option is checked.  Whenever I open an MDI child form, it appears in the Windowlist on the Windows menu.

However, the text which appears in the Windowlist seems to be the caption of the MDI parent form, followed by the caption of the MDI child form.  For example:

This Is My Application (Parent) Name - This Is My Child Form Name

Is there a way to tell VB to use ONLY the caption of the child form in the Windowlist, and not show the caption of the parent?
