What is the difference between simple form & MDI form?

MDI (Multi Document Interface) Form is form that can hold multi forms inside it.


MDI Form Contain the Multiple MDICHILD form and Dialog form
But Simple for do not able to contain any form in it.


MDI forms are certainly helpful for embedding other forms. Something that a lot of people don't know, is that you can make any window that has an hWnd, the child of another form with a simple API call. So, essentially, even top level windows CAN be MDI, but in practice, this is rude. :)
