Reflection and Menu Merging in MDIs

P: n/a
We have an MDI application that looks for forms in which a common interface
has been implemented. We can instantiate the forms and display them as
children of the mdi and use the functionality on them.

The problem is that the menus from the child forms don't show up. They
don't even show up on the
form itself, much less merge with the mdiparent menus

We have changed the modifiers on the menu and on each item in the menu to
public so they can be seen outside the assembly. We have tried not making
the form an mdichild and using it as a stand-alone application (still
instantiated by the mdi, although not as a child). The child form does
appear in the 'windows' list as a child of the mdi.

Is there any way to make available to the mdi, the menu on a child form
instantiated through reflection?
