plz help

Are you working using MDI technique? or just you open form from another??

working on MDI.
can u just tell me how to make mdichild, is it like vb 6.06 just select yes in PROPERTIES or Must write some codes

:O tell you what?, Didn't you tell that you did it and need to know how to close the child form?? or you didn't do it at all!!!!!

Yea I'm a little lost as well - I thought all he needed was
form1.close() or form2.close() or WhateverYourFormsNameIs.Close()

but he needs to code it as well?

sorry i just want to know , my friend told me that u just have to select from PROPERTIES. But i wrote some code for MDI child.

Just confirm this is it possible to make MDI child from another way cause i wrote some code.

Then i cant close the form from menustrip

i try this code as well, but it does not work

Private Sub mainmenuToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles mainmenuToolStripMenuItem.Click
        Me.Show()
        Me.frm2.Close()
    End Sub

OK. To close the Child window

Me.ActiveMdiChild().Close()

Public Class Form2
  Private Sub Form2_Activated(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Activated
    MsgBox("Test")
    Me.BeginInvoke(New MethodInvoker(AddressOf CloseIt))
  End Sub
  Private Sub CloseIt()
    Me.Close()
  End Sub
End Class
