I have 3 window forms parent form, child form and 3rd is sample form.
i have opened child form in parent form by using parent MenuStrips option .following code is used ...
private void ChildFormToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
foreach (var child in this.MdiChildren)
{ child.Close(); }
this.menuStrip1.MdiWindowListItem = ChildFormToolStripMenuItem;
ChildForm Cf = new ChildForm();
Cf.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized;

this is working properly..
now i want to open 3rd sample form in parent form by clicking a button on child form.

From a button on child form i want to open a 3rd sample form inside parent form.

Solution 1

So create an event in the child form which the parent handles. The parent then creates the sub form and displays it.
It's very easy to do: Transferring information between two forms, Part 2: Child to Parent[^] explains the process (among other things)
