Center Forms Onscreen

I use this procedure to center my forms. With frmParent, the last loaded form is centered against the parent form. Otherwise, it's centered against the screen. I always center forms in the Load event and often forget to put Me as the parameter. To center any form, put CenterForm in the Form_Load event:

Public Sub CenterForm(Optional _
If Forms.Count = 0 Then Exit Sub
If IsMissing(frmParent) Or Not TypeOf _
        frmParent Is Form Then 
        Forms(Forms.Count - 1).Move _
                (Screen.Width - _
                Forms(Forms.Count - _
                1).Width) / 2, _
                (Screen.Height - Forms(Forms. _
                Count - 1).Height) / 2
        Forms(Forms.Count - 1).Move _
                (frmParent.Width - Forms(Forms. _
                Count - 1).Width) / 2, _
                (frmParent.Height - _
                Forms(Forms.Count - _
                1).Height) / 2
End If
End Sub
