MDI Forms and Controls on MDIParent Problem...

I have been working on an application that involves the creation of MDI forms. The MDIParent form simply MUST have some controls on it, and the child form also has some controls on it. I followed the instructions provided by msdn.microsoft.com at:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vbcon/html/vbconmdiapplications.asp and have encountered a problem.

Go to the link provided above, set isMdiContainer equal to true, create a menu item, and set the code in the click property to:

// C#
protected void MDIChildNew_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
Form2 newMDIChild = new Form2();
// Set the Parent Form of the Child window.
newMDIChild.MdiParent = this;
// Display the new form.
newMDIChild.Show();
}

I would appreciate it if you would try it out and then explain to me how to correct the problem. After you have created the parent form, the menu on the parent form, added the code above in the menu click event, and changed the property on the MDIParent form to isMDIContainer=true, then add some controls to the MDIParent form. Add all sorts of controls such as a PictureBox, a button, a text box, and a combo box.

Now the problem, when you run the application and click the menu item, the MDIChild form appears BEHIND the MDIParent controls. That is, the controls added to the MDIParent form appear IN FRONT OF the MDIChild form. How awkward!!! How do I get the controls on the MDIParent form to appear BEHIND the MDIChild form?

I tried to change the newMDIChild.Show() to newMDIChild.ShowDialog() to make it modal but that did not help. Also I have the newMDIChild form set as TopMost = true, but that did not work either. I then thought that these two levels of code might interact with each other so then I set newMDIChild.TopMode = false and then newMDIChild.ShowDialog() but still did not solve the problem.

How would I get the MDIParent form and all of its controls to be covered over by the MDIChild form when appropriate just like a normal form would? It probably is some simple property setting or some abstract class that I have never heard about. I would really appreciate some input as to how to get the controls to appear BEHIND the MDIChild form rather than in front of it.

Another problem with MDI forms (child forms appear UNDER images)
