I have an MDI application with several child forms. The child form’s Activated event is not being fired consistently as different child forms are activated. What’s wrong?
In .Net 1.0, the child forms do not get the Form.Activated event (only the parent MDI). To catch MDI children being activated, listen to the Enter/Leave events of that child Form or listen to the Form.MdiChildActivate event in the parent Form.
In 1.1 the child Forms do get the Activated event.
