Thanks for the reply Hobbes. I took your advice and switched to the Krypton Form and everything worked great until I realized that the MDI form will not show correctly (it says it's loaded and I can open/close it, but the richtextbox control or form is not seen). So the question is: do I have to use a Krypton Form for my MDI child also?
Below is the code I'm using to create the new MDI child:
- Code: Select all
Private Sub NewFile()
childFormsCount += 1
Dim childForm As New fEditor
childForm.Text = "Unsaved Document " & childFormsCount
childForm.MdiParent = Me
This worked fine using the standard VS forms. This is getting to be a lot of rewriting and I'm thinking about asking for my money back. What's your thoughts?
