Are you working with MDI forms? And want to tile them vertically, horizontally, or cascade them?

If so, use (as an example):
VB.NET:
Me.LayoutMdi(MdiLayout.TileVertical)

This code is in the MdiParent form. To tile horizontally or to cascade, use one of the other MdiLayout enumerations.

Could you describe you application?

Do you have MdiChild forms open and nothing happens when you click the menuItems that include the aboe event handlers?

An MDI (Multiple Document Interface) application is one where there is a Main Form that usually contains only a Menu and some Toolbars (could have other features such as a panel on the right with buttons, ...). An example is older versions of MS Word. When you click File -> New, a document is created (which is another form) but it is contained in the main form. You can open many new documents (the documents would be the MdiChild forms) and all are contained in the main form. When you minimize the main form, all of it's children are also minimized.

See this thread for a How To: "In form" windows[url]

If this doesn't answer your questions, fell free to elaborate more on what you're trying to do. :)

To use tooltips, place a tooltip control on the form. The tooltip control is an extender control, so the property setting will show up in the properties for the button (and any other control that can accept tootips). To set the tooltip, select the button and set the property. The property will be called 'Tooltip on <nameOfTooltipControl>'.

To have a context menu that can open a form, place a context control on the form, Edit it and add whatever text you want, name the MenuItem what you want, and double click it to add an event handler to the code window. In the event handler, use code similar to this:
VB.NET:
Dim frm as New frmNew()
frm.show

Perhaps you should begin a new thread with each question you have :).

The context menu I believe you have correct. A context menu is (usually) a menu that opens when a control is right clicked.

A tooltip is a small message that pops up when you hover over a control (default is a yellow background, it is usually used to explain the function of a control). There is no need to have a toolbar first, although toolbars can have tooltips (as can buttons and most other controls).

About the If sentence (statement), show your code.

To add a panel to the statusBar, click the ellipsis (button with ...) next to the 'Panel' property of the statusbar; add a panel in the dialog and set it's properties. Make sure to set the 'ShowPanels' property of the statusBar to True.
