My windows application has a MDIForm as the main form with multiple MIDChild forms. How can tell which MDIChild form is the ActiveForm? I couldn't seem to find how to determine this in the MSDN documentation.

The Form.MdiChildActivate event is always triggered when the MDI child form get activeated; just handle the event and you've there.

You can use the ActiveMdiChild Property of the MDI main form.

David,

Thanks for your response, however, I looked on MSDN for the MDIChildActivate Event and unfortunately it wasn't very helpful. Perhaps my screenshot can explain what I'm trying to do.

Thanks!
