Hello all,

Ive got a MDI application with few child forms. Ive created dataset and dataadapeters through the wizard.

My question is.. do i fill the dataset when the mdi form loads? or do i have to fill the dataset and drag the dataadapters in each child form??...

that depends on ur Need
If u r filling the DataSets on MDIForm load
that means u will be using the Data Throught the application from the MDI Form start

if some data must be filled when the Forms open then u must fill the DataSet on the InitialiseComponent Event of the Form
or in the Load Event of the form (choose any one of them)
and try to dispose or free these data on close of the form (if they r not required)

Do decide the need according to ur application and Fill or Free them
