    Form on the form

    I'm trying to implement VB.Net scenario in C#.
    In VB.Net I have an MDI application with MDI form and several child forms.
    MDI has a List Bar control on the left.
    Child forms load and occupying the entire client area of MDI.
    On of the child form (frmCoordinator) may load another form (frmBidCalendar) and that form should have exact the same size and location as the caller.
    There is the code in the frmBidCalendar_Load:
    Code:
            Dim rectCaller As Rectangle
            Dim rectLocation As Rectangle
            Try
                rectCaller = frmCoordinator.ClientRectangle
                rectLocation = frmCoordinator.RectangleToScreen(rectLocation)
    
                Me.Size = rectCaller.Size
                Me.Location = rectLocation.Location
    I tried this in C#:
    Code:
                    rectCaller = frmCoordinator.ClientRectangle();
    and it says 'The name frmCoordinator doesn't exist in the current contents'
    I tried this:
    Code:
                    rectCaller = Coordinator.ClientRectangle;
    and it says 'An object reference is required...'
    How can I translate VB.Net code to C#?

    Thank you

    You have a typo in the last code snippet. Shouldn't it be frmCoordinator, not Coordinator?

    The previous attempt has frm, the last one is correct, no typo.
    Thank you

    Is frmCoordinator.ClientRectangle a property or a method? If it is a property it should nit be called with parentheses.

    Try
    rectCaller = frmCoordinator.ClientRectangle;
    Not
    rectCaller = frmCoordinator.ClientRectangle();
