Please consider this code

                       public System.Windows.Forms.Form PRIAMForm
                  set
                  {
                        FForm = value;

                        if (FForm != null)
                        {
                              FForm.Width = Width;
                              FForm.Left = 0;
                              FForm.Top = 0;
                              FForm.Height = Height;
                                }
........

// -----------------------------------

This is property accessor method for a component which has a Form as a property.

The following assignment AForm.PRIAMForm = null causes a Null exception - attempts are made to set the  FForm.Width property. Why, when the "  if (FForm != null)  " should prevent this?

Thanks

Steve
