That's not a class, it's a formstyle

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  self.FormStyle := fsNormal;

It says cannot make a visible window modal

unit JForm;


  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, Grids, DBGrids, JvExStdCtrls, JvEdit, JvDBSearchEdit, CHILDWIN, StdCtrls,
  JvCheckBox, ExtCtrls, Buttons, JvExControls, JvXPCore, JvXPButtons, ADODB, DB;

  TForm =  class(TMDIChild).....  >>>> i want change this in TForm

That meas that your form descends from a TMDIChild form. You cannot change the ancestor on the fly.
