Opening all the child form at a same location through MDI parent form in windows c#

sam7one asked:

Open original thread
Every time I open a new form through a MDI parent regardless it is same or different form, it changes its location. I assume that it must be a default behavior, But I would like to open all the form at SAME LOCATION,

If user opens multiple forms through a MDI parent, recently opened forms will go out of the screen and user have to drag them manually at the center(this would be annoying for them.)

Below is the code for opening child form through MDI parent

frmCreateClient childForm = new frmCreateClient();
            childForm.MdiParent = this;
            childForm.Text = "New Client";

I tried to add location in the above code as below, but it didn't work

childForm.Location = new Point(15, 15);
