always at the bottom

I'm having trouble with placing forms inside an mdi form.

what i'm wanting is that when you open the main application the two forms will be displayed at the bottom of the screen (regardless what screen rezthe user has) abd to always stay ontop.

Could somebody please point me in the right direction


Ps. the form on the bottom right hand which displays the time. i know it doesn't work i justn eed to put it into a timer, i just can't be bothered

another docked toolwindow question?
Draw a Picture box on your MDI Form, and set Align to 2 - Align Bottom.
Then just plop your controls on the box.

thancks dexmix, i didn't realise you could draw a picture box straight onto an MDI form. i knew yo could draw a few things onto it but not a picture box. Anyways i'll give it a whirl
