with two problems.
First: when i close the MDI child i want to ask if the user would like to save the data in the child and give them the regular choice yes,no,cancel however when i try to use the Formclosing event it never fires, it does fire for the mdi parent but that is no help.
Second: When i load the child i am using a template form to get all the controls and code, but if i close all the children then reopen one it errors because the controls are disposed.
Can anyone help solve these problems? I am including some of the code i am having errors with!
