hello,
How can I set location of the runtime created form below the mainform.
I have 5 runtime forms ,they need to be one below the other when created.


i have this bit of working vcode:

objfrm2 .Location = New Point(Me.Left, Me.Bottom + objFrm2.Height)

The 'Me' should be the last created form or the mainform ,need advise on the 'Me' part
Cheers

Use an director (see builder pattern). E.g. something like:

Public Class WindowManager
    Private forms As New List(Of Form)

    Public Sub AddForm(AForm As Form)
        Me.forms.Add(AForm)
    End Sub

    Public Sub ArrangeWindows()
        Dim currentTop As Long = 0

        For Each form As Form In Me.forms
            form.Location = New Point(form.Left, currentTop)
            currentTop += form.Height
        Next form
    End Sub
End Class

Me refers to the object the code is being run in.  eg.  The current instance of a form.  

Other objects would need to be qualified with code   eg.  frm1.xxxx, frm2.yyyy where frm1, frm2 are references to existing forms.

            '30)  'Screen.GetWorkingArea(Me).Location
            Me.Location = New Point((Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Width - Me.Width) \ 2, 0)

            With objFrm2
                .StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual
                'Select Case StrPosition
                'Case 1
