Window within window

P: n/a
Could someone please help? Im trying to figure out how to have multiple
forms opened within one form, but the book im using really doesn't help
much.

I was thinking of using the panels, but im confused as to how to make it
work.

Also, if someone could point out a good reference book, that'd be
awesome.
thanks for any feedback,
D

use the help menu and search for "mdi" forms.

an mdi parent is the master window and mdi children are the windows that the
parent will contain. these are properties you can set in the properties
window of a form.

i started learning using:

"programming microsoft visual basic .net"

it's about 3" thick but divided up into logical sections with in-depth
explanations and examples that are fairly straight-forward and easy to
understand.

hth,

Set the main window's 'IsMdiContainer' property to 'True'. Then use the
code below to show your forms:

\\\
Dim f As New FooForm()
f.MdiParent = Me
f.Show()
///
