    Sub windows in a main window (VB6)

    I'm trying to learn how to make applications in the style of regular MS apps where there is a main window that can be maximized to the full desktop size, and there is sub windows that can only be sized within the main window and cannot show outside of it.

    I don't know the technical terms for this therefore i'm having trouble finding info on it.

    Would anyone be able to tell me the terms of what i'm looking for or give me some links/info on how to do it.

    Regards,

    It is called MDI: Multiple Document Interface.

    See for example Multiple-Document Interface (MDI) Applications.

    Excellent, thanks Hans. Got myself an MDI form (simple when you know the terminology!), now i'm going to delve back into the world of menu's - haven't been there for a while!

    Thanks again. Regards,
