Hi,

Scene 1 -

We have two projects, #1 in Vb.Net and other in #2 in C#.Net.

I have a MDI form in #1 which calls a form1 of #2 form1 of #2 is also a MDI form.

I am adding #2 project in #1 by giving reference of exe.

I am not able to open #2, as its MDI container.

Scene 2 -

If I remove MDIcontainer of #2, then I want to open all the forms of #1 as child in #2

Please help its very very urgent

Thanks,
Chirag.

Oh, I checked my scheduler. It looks like this is the lowest priority work. I would suggest to exclude it from the plans entirely.

Here is the idea: who needs MDI, ever? Why torturing yourself and scaring off your users?
Do yourself a great favor: do not use MDI at all. You can do much easier to implement design without it, with much better quality. MDI is highly discouraged even by Microsoft, in fact, Microsoft dropped it out of WPF and will hardly support it. More importantly, you will scare off all your users if you use MDI. Just don't. Please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_document_interface#Disadvantages[^],

I can explain what to do instead. Please see my past answers:

Eliminate using different Forms, Take different group box instead of forms, just do visible and enable stuffs.
