If you've created a child form in which the ShowWindow Property is set to 1В вЂ”В In Top-Level Form, you don't directly specify the top-level form that acts as the child form's parent. Instead, Visual FoxPro assigns the child form to a parent at the time the child window is displayed.
To display a child form inside a top-level form
Create a top-level form.
In the event code of the top-level form, include the DO FORM Command, specifying the name of the child form to display.
For example, create a button in the top-level form, and then in the Click Event code for the button, include a command such as this one:
В Copy Code
DO FORM MyChild
Note: The top-level form must be visible and active when the child form is displayed. Therefore, you cannot use the Init Event of the top-level form to display a child form, because the top-level form will not yet be active.
Activate the top-level form, and then if necessary, trigger the event that displays the child form.
