MDI question - how to call other MDI child forms from a MDI chilid form?


Robert Johnson

Hi all. I have a MDI child form that is a systems maintenance form. I have
7 buttons that will be used to call 7 lookup table maintance forms. My code
to call the lookup table child forms from the child form is the problem.
How do I code it?
The MainFrame.vb is the MDI container. I tried setting that as the MdiParent
but no joy... Obviously I can't use .Me as .Me is a child form also.. So
how do I do this?

Thanks in advance..


Here is the one that calls the maintence form for Color:

Private Sub btnColor_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles btnColor.Click

Dim frmCOL As New frmColorMaint

frmCOL.MdiParent = GRS2.MainForm <------- this is the MainFrame.vb
that is the MDI container


End Sub
