To make a child form temporarily unparent it's MdiParent property has to be set as null and makes it visibility to false. Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:

C#

//Unparent

hiddenForms.Add(form);

form.MdiParent = null;

//Reparent

form.MdiParent = this;

form.Show();

VB

'Unparent

form.MdiParent = Nothing

form.Hide()

'Reparent

form.MdiParent = Me

form.Show()
