MDI

Hi,

I have an MDI interface.
In the parrentform i can open multiple childforms.

form program1
form program2
form program3
....
like this
DocNum++;

Worksheet.Text = "Document " + DocNum.ToString ();

Worksheet.MdiPa rent = this;

Worksheet.Text = "Program " + DocNum;

Worksheet.Name = "Program " + DocNum;

Worksheet.Show( );
the form that's loaded has a timer on it.

I'm trying to start the timer from the parentform with a startbutton in a
toolbar.
is there a way to only start the timer on the active mdichild.
or let the user choose a form where he wants the timer to start. <---- i
prefer this.

Kind regards Maarten.

I assume that each of the forms have the timer implemented? As long as
they all have it, forget about the doc#, instead keep an arraylist of
all of the mdi windows that are open. When the user wants to start a
timer go back through the list, populate a drop down with the names of
the mdi windows, and then run the timer on the mdi they choose in the
drop down.

Thinking over it again, you may want to invoke the timer from the mdi
you are trying to run it on incase you have it running on a different
thread...

ArrayList[n].invoke("functi on", null, null)

It probably won't look exactly like that but hopefully you'll get the drift.
