MenuStrips and MDI

Posted 23 October 2011 - 11:36 AM

I have an application that has borderless forms with a custom GUI, using Photoshop as its design. I have set one of the forms as an MDI child to a panel on the main form using the SetParent method in user32.dll. This has been working like a charm (see topic: http://www.dreaminco...di-capturing/).

Dim f2 As New Form2
SetParent(f2.Handle, Panel1.Handle)
f2.Show()


Here's the problem: The child form has a MenuStrip on it. The MenuStrip items are working fine when the form is open by itself. However, when it is set as the MDI Child of the panel, I cannot open the MenuStrip. What's going wrong?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
