hi all,

im trying to check if a form is open on click and if it is go to that tab instead of creating a new one
my code is below and it returns this error on click

"Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute."
private void iHome_ItemClick(object sender, DevExpress.XtraBars.ItemClickEventArgs e)
        {
            FormCollection fc = Application.OpenForms;

            foreach (Form frm in fc)
            {
                if (frm.Name == "frmHome")
                {
                    frm.Activate();
                    return;
                }

                Athena.frmHome Home = new Athena.frmHome();
                Home.MdiParent = this;
                Home.Show();
            }

        }

Your original code only checked the first form then added a new form is the first didn't meet your requirements.  I assume this was not what you wanted.
