I am a newbie so bare with me! I created an MDI app with my frmParent as the MDI form and several child forms. When the frmParent loads it opens my frmMain which is a splash screen that has 3 buttons on it that are suppose to open other child forms within the MDI form. This is to make it easier for the user to navigate to whichever form they need to get to if they don't want to use the menu options.

For the button click on the frmMain I have it set to close itself and open the corresponding form as shown below:

Public Sub btnProduct_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnProduct.Click
Dim child As New frmProducts

End Sub

However, it opens frmClothing but not as a child form to frmParent. It opens as a floating window. What am I doing wrong? I have tried to figure out the parent property, setting the frmParent as Active, setting the frmClothing.MDIParent = frmParent and I cannot get this work.

Please help!
