Button1 should be at the back of form2.
How to do this?

Code:
Public Class Form1
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim NewMDIChild As New Form2()
        NewMDIChild.MdiParent = Me
        NewMDIChild.Show()
End Sub
End Clas

The Button shouldn't be in that area of the form at all. That would be a horrible UI to have a Button disappear behind child forms. You should use a docked Panel, a ToolStrip or something like that. Apart from that, I don't think what you're asking for is actually possible. I just tried and the MdiClient control that hosts the child forms won't accept anything but forms.

@jmcilhinney

this is just an example of my problem,
originally
I removed the border of my mdi form to false
and I put a backgroud image to it
then put 3 buttons at the middle
that calls different forms.

That's what I like to my mdi form,
I just want to make my system look good.

but thanks for the response.
