Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.Form

The Form that the container control is assigned to. This property will return null if the control is hosted inside of Internet Explorer or in another hosting context where there is no parent form.

The following code example shows how to create two forms: Form1 and Form2. Set the IsMdiContainer property of Form1 to true and make it the MdiParent of Form2. Next, create a button, button1, on each form. When the button on the parent form is clicked, the event handler displays the child form. When the button on the child form is clicked, the event handler displays the Name property of its parent form. Use the following two code segments to overwrite button1 event handlers in both forms.
