Hi all,

How can I accomplish to have in my menubar an item that lists all the forms that are open in an application. See image attached.
I thought it was a simple line of code that you had to place in the menubaritem but I can't remember or seem to find it in this demo application..

How about having a public static global list and when each form opens add it to the list and when it closes remove it from the list then use this list to populate your menu.

I did some more digging and I found this. If I remember correctly this is what I was looking for :)

Setting the MDIList property of a MenuItem                 to True, will give at runtime, a list of all open child                  forms. It will display a tick mark next to the active child window.
