 I am developing a vb.net windows application. While showing a form as a modal dialog,  how I can control the position where the modal window will appear .  It is indeed good, if I can control the left and top of the window . Or the effect  of  "bottom of the parent" will be good enough.

   thanking you,
         Samson

       Dim form As New Form1
        form.Location = Me.Poi New Point(100, 100)
        form.Width = 200
        form.Height = 200
        form.ShowDialog()

If you want to do this inside of child form itself, do this  in the form Load event handler. To find new form coordinates relatively to parent coordinates, use Control.PointToCScreen Method. For example, this line
form.Location = Me.PointToScreen(New Point(100, 100))
sets child form torm to position (100, 100) relatively to current form.

but you have to set the form property

Form.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual

for it to display at the position specified..
