MDI Forms, PArent and Child

MDI Forms, PArent and Child

MDI Forms, PArent and Child

I have a Main form (Parent), with bar menu, and a number of Child forms called in that bar menu.
IMS, Properties sheet for a form did have property setting for MDI Form in the past - which is there in the VS 2012 I have), - and also for making form a Child one on Design time (at least in VB6, again - IMS).
Now, I see IsMdiContainer property, but no IsMdiChild in the Properties sheet anymore... ponder

I got around it with


frmChild.MdiParent = Me

in the ToolStripMenuItem_Click() event procedure, but...

What am I missing?



RE: MDI Forms, PArent and Child

I totally forgot about it!
It's been a year since I could do any programming (t's not an excuse, just explanation, so - my apologies!)
