hi all,

I got 3 form that is form1,form2,form3

I create a mainmenu to call form2 or form3

I got problem to getcenter the form2 or form3 in FORM 1....

Anyone have idea?...

This is what I came up with thinking quickly. The code is for the client forms

Public Class Form2

  Private Sub Form2_Activated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Activated
    ' Call resize to position this form _after_ creation
    ' Call with dummy (empty) args
    Form2_Resize(Me, New System.EventArgs)

  End Sub

  Private Sub Form2_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    '

  End Sub

  Private Sub Form2_Resize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Resize
    ' Center to calling form
    Dim ParentX As Integer ' Y coordinate
    Dim ParentY As Integer ' X coordinate
    Dim ParentHeight As Integer ' Height
    Dim ParentWidth As Integer ' Width
    Dim NewY As Integer ' This form's new vertical position
    Dim NewX As Integer ' This form's new horizontal position

    ' NOTICE: You have to know the name of the calling form
    ' Form1.Location.X and Form1.Location.Y return the parent's screen coordinates
    ParentY = Form1.Location.Y
    ParentX = Form1.Location.X
    ' Get Form1 size
    ParentHeight = Form1.Height
    ParentWidth = Form1.Width
    ' Calculate vertical position
    NewY = ParentY + (ParentHeight \ 2) - (Me.Height \ 2)
    ' Calculate horizontal position
    NewX = ParentX + (ParentWidth \ 2) - (Me.Width \ 2)
    ' Set the position
    Me.Location = New Point(NewX, NewY)

  End Sub

End Class

I commented the code as well as I could so it should be self-explanatory. Form2_Resize sub may not be the best place to relocate form, but you can put the calculation to some other sub.
