Hidden MDI Children

Hidden MDI Children

“Hide” an MDI child form with a non-sizable border style (0 or 1) using this code in the MDI child’s Form_Load event:

 form1.Move form1.Left, form1.Top, 0, 0

Use a label control covering the visible area of the form to allow switching on and off:

 If form1.Height = 0 Then	form1.Move form1.Left, form1.Top, _		form1!Label1.Width, form1!Label1.HeightElse	form1.Move form1.Left, form1.Top, 0, 0End If

The form remains loaded but invisible and is immediately available when required. The label control should consume no extra resources. This method provides a quick popup window within MDI.
