How can I point to a control in my MDI Parent form? by PinoIT
Posted: 7 Mar 03

If (for instance) you have a logbox, a status bar a.s.o. in your MDI Parent application, to point and use it simply do this:

... in any form ...

Dim MyMDIParent = Me.MdiParent.FindForm

Now you got it... if for instance you got a log panel with a RichText... to write into simply write:

MyMDIParent.MyRichTextBox1.AppendText("This is my text from elsewhere in the application" & Chr(10))
