Enable/Diable menu items on Parent Form from Child Form

Last Modified: 2015-10-30
Though I would think this would be easy..

I have a windows VB 2010 mdi application.

The parent form has a menu on it that we want to have all entries disabled when start.

Based on a login from a child form, I need to enable certain items on that menu based on the login credentials.

How can I access the menu control on the parent form from the child form on a button click on the child form.
