ok, i'm developing an mdi application here's the thing the parent form has a menu (Private MainMenu1 in the component tray) and the child form (multiple instances of the same child form) also has a menu (Private MainMenu1 in the component tray)

now here's the interesting thing when no children are open the parent window only show's it's menu (like it should):

but when a child window is open the child window doesnt have it's menu located at the top of the child window, it's merged into the parent's menu:

so how can i have it so the child's menu is displayed right under the title bar like it normally would be?

like this:

it's a nice feature but not what i want in this app cause both windows (forms) have a File item but different things are listed
