Default Displaying MDI Child Form Menus with MDI Parent

Hi All,

I have a MDI form (with a menu) and a MDI Child form. Because I want to use a PopUp menu in the MDI Child form, I created a menu on it and I set the NegotiateMenus property to True.

The problem is: When I open the MDI child form, it *replaces* the menu on the MDI form!

The NegotiateMenus property seems to do nothing.

How can I solve this???
I only want my MDI menu, and a Popup menu on the MDI child form.
I'm using VB6 SP6.

I'll appreciate any help

Thank you,
Ashu

You need to create all of your menus on either of the one form and uncheck the visible property of popup menus.

You need to create all the menus in one form. MDI Form suits best for this.
