More information:
In my MDI application I have search forms that can be started on their own or started from another form to behave like a lookup. When they are started on their own they should behave like a normal MDIchild form. When started from another form I wanted them to behave more like a modal. Since you cannot have a MODAL MDIchild I implemented this sample.
