Hi,
May be you can invoke the child form by using childform.ShowDialog() instead of Show() method. Since this will make the child form as modal, your parent mdi form will be disabled and you cannot close the parent form. Hioe this helps you.

Hi,
may be you can disable the child window. this will ultimately disable the parent mdi window.

try this in your child windows button click event.

 
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

            this.Enabled = false;

            // do something
            Thread.Sleep(3000);
            //end
        
            this.Enabled = true;
        }

Open in new window
