Hi!
I have a question:
In mainform 's source code, how can I know which other forms are showed, and how can I control these forms from mainform, such as calling a method in each of these forms?

Plz help me!
Thank you very much.

within MDI form use this code
===================
child form is MyChildForm

MyChildForm childForm = null;
    foreach(Form f in this.MdiChildren)
     {
          if(f is MyChildForm)
          {
               // found it
                childForm = (MyChildForm) f;
                break;
           }
      }
      if( childForm != null)
      {
           childForm.Show();
           childForm.Focus();
      }
      else
      {
           childForm = new MyChildForm();
           childForm.MdiParent = this;
           childForm.Show();
           childForm.Focus();
      }
