HI,
I would appreciate your help....
I have 3 win forms (1 parent mdi form and 2 child forms)
Parent form has attached standard Menu Strip...
I'm trying to use Save option in menu strip in both 2 child forms....
I tried to handle this event SaveToolStripMenuItem.Click on form 2 (which is child form) as in code below but got error as follows:
"Handles clause requires a WithEvents variable defined in the containing type or one of its base types"
Please help me in order to make this working....
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click, SaveToolStripMenuItem.Click

Hello nepaluz,
Thank you for your reply and given instructions...
Somehow, your proposal , in order to be implemented, required additional time and effort for me so I tried different solution that works OK with me (Code below)
Anyway thank you for your time and effort...
Private Sub SaveToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SaveToolStripMenuItem.Click
        Dim currentForm As Form = Form.ActiveForm.ActiveMdiChild
        If currentForm.Text = "Form2" Then
            Form2.Button1_Click(sender, e)
            MsgBox("OK - saved")
        Else
            MsgBox("NOK")
        End If
    End Sub
