Hello
I created a form that is Mdi container another for child and a dialog form
which is suppose to open that child inside the container.
so i have :
1- main form (Mdi Container)
2- child form (Mdi child)
3- Dialg form (something like a menu to open the childes inside main form)

lets say dialog form has a button click event, how can i set the MdiParent
of child form without creating a new instance of parent form.
thanks in advance,

Pass a reference to the MDI main form to your dialog, for example in a
property.
