Me.Parent.topmo st=true does not work

I learned about the TopMost property from a recent post which solved some
problems.

But I have a situation where a control wants to make the form it is on be
the topmost.

It could raise an event but be cleaner if it could do it directly.

I tried the following but the compiler thinks Parent is a control (they
don't have a topmost property.)

Me.Parent.topmo st

Any suggestions

What am I missing form this method that will prevent access to the parent form when the frmB is active? If you run this method, you can still access the parent form and its functionality. Sub WhatEver Dim frmB As New Form '-- The New Form to display frmB.TopMost = True frmB.Owner = CType(Parent, Form) frmB.Show() End Sub

When I call the MDIChild form, I get the form caption (on the MDIParent) of the MDIChild and its' control menus but the client area still has...

I'm running VS.NET 2002 and keep having problems with form keeping on top with its TopMost property. Sometimes my program places the invoked form on top sometimes not. Sometimes when I click on the form it stays on top as it should, but sometimes TopMost property does not pick up so if I click to some other program it covers the form which supposed to remain on the top. Has anyone experienced similar problems? is there a fix? or I am...

Hi Suppose I have two forms: Form1 and Form2. I create and show an instance of Form2 in the code of Form1 e.g. Dim myForm2 = New Form2 myForm2.Show() How do I tell myForm2 that Form1 is its parent? That is, when I look at either "Parent" or "ParentForm" in Form2, they both show "Nothing".

Hi all. Why doesn't the Start Position CenterParent work in a MDI child when it opens in a MDI container? This is the code that opens it if that makes a difference: Dim smf As New frmSystemsMaintenance smf.Show() Regards, Robert

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
