MDI Window - Own Status

P: n/a
Has anyone ever had this happen to them?

I have a MDI Parent form and an MDI child form.
The child form properly displays as a child form, but, the minimize,
maximize and close ( x button ) in teh top right corner of the window - that
usually displays in the Parent's Main Menu, does not. Instead it creates
like its own status bar or tool bar on top and puts it there.

I can create a new Form, make it the Parent Form, and load the MDI child
into it and it works.
Its like the Form has some setting that I just cant find that it does not
see the Main Menu on the Parent MDI form.

You don't have a small working sample that can reproduce this do you?

Thanks,

Yes I do,

I was just starting a dummy app so i was able to delete out the sql db and
everything else that is not relevant.

Here is a link I have put it on.
-Ignore the domain name, im in the middle of switching to different ISP so i
am using a temp spot on a clients server.

Do you have an idea of what it could be? - have you run into this before?

I just restarted and everything worked as planned.

Thanks

As the Warnings window says, you should rename the menu strip because it
conflicts with the Property in the base class. In addition, set the Form's
MainMenuStrip property to your menustrip.

Thank you,

I was trying the MainMenuStrip property but I never see the warning.

I willremoved the zip file at the end of the week so if anyone else wants to
see the issue, they can download it.

Thanks again,

Cheers'
