Default Opening a form in a form

Hello,

I would like to have a form with a tool bar and each icon opens a seperate form to do a certain function. However I would like the second form only to be available in the first main form. I've tried searching google and I'm not even sure if I'm using the correct terms for what I want. Thank you for your time in reading this.

Paul

For anyone who searches and finds this. It's called a MDI or Multipule document interface. You create a parent Form (there is a premade template in VS.net2005) and then as you design forms you open them on the main form using a little line of code. Search under creating child mdi forms for more.

you can use MDI or Multipal document interface. on the parent form make the object of the child form or second form and use its function or property on your main form By using Doc property.
