I'd like the caption bar to highlight when I click the form's user control

I have a MDI form open and two child forms open in it.

Each of the children contains a usercontrol which contains a richtextbox.

The topmost form's caption bar is highlighted but I click on the other
form's usercontrol, which is partially showing.

(I don't click the caption bar, if I did it would become highlighted, but
clicking the usercontrol does not highlight the caption bar.)

After clicking the usercontrol I can type into it, even though the form's
caption bar shows inactive (and the other shows active)

Don't like that - I'd like the caption bar to highlight when I click the
form's user control.

Can I force that?
