I'm sure this is a very very simple question.  How do you set up a MDI Form with child forms contained in the Parent?  I set up the MDI, but all of the child forms can be moved outside of the MDI.

Thanks,

Hi jocasio123,

In VB.Net, we do this:
            Dim f As New fClientUHMS
            f.MdiParent = Me
            f.Show()

It should be much the same in C#.

Cheers!

C# equivalent of emoreau's post:

    SomeChildForm f = new SomeChildForm();
    f.MdiParent = this;
    f.Show();

Can this be done through the IDE?  In 6.0 (VB) you could set the child prop to True.  Is there a property similar?

>>In 6.0 (VB) you could set the child prop to True.

In VB6, you were deciding at design time if the form was to be child or not.

Now in .Net, this setting is only available at runtime and this is a good thing. You can decide if a form will be a child or not depending on some other condition. For example, experienced users prefers non-MDI windows.
