As the beginner I want to know Is it necessary to add MDI parent for Library management System?

Can this be done without MDI Parent too?

And also is it necessary to add the below code for mdi parent of every project?

Private Sub ShowNewForm(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    ' Create a new instance of the child form.
    Dim ChildForm As New System.Windows.Forms.Form
    ' Make it a child of this MDI form before showing it.
    ChildForm.MdiParent = Me

    m_ChildFormNumber += 1
    ChildForm.Text = "Window " & m_ChildFormNumber

    ChildForm.Show()
End Sub

Kindly help me soon.

Is not necessary, it depends on your own needs or how the user want the software to look like and if you think
you get confusing on it please leave it. But if you want to be a good programmer it's better to know it
