mdiLayout Issue?

P: n/a
I am attempting to use the following code:

Me.LayoutMdi(MdiLayout.TileHorizontal)

However, when this code runs the MDI children currently being displayed are
not tiled. Nothing happens at all. Is this a known issue with Visual
Studio 2003 and/or VB.Net? I originally thought the problem was related to
visual inheritance (see previous message below). With some more testing I
discovered that other menu options (whether on an MDI child form or a
derived MDI child form) worked as they should.

Only the calls the LayoutMdi don't work. Any help would be appreciated.

I have created an MDI child form that I am using as a base form in a VB.Net
MDI application. The base MDI child form has a series of menu options on
it. I then use this form to create other MDI child forms (using
inheritance). The problem is that the derived MDI child form's menu options
don't seem to have inherited the functionality from the base form (i.e. the
inherited menu options don't work).

If I place a command button or other control on the base form the
functionality from the base form is available on the inherited forms. Does
anyone know what might be wrong? Is there a known bug regarding MDI forms,
menus, and visual inheritance? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
