 Help file not accessed when pressing F1

I am wondering if there is a solution to the following problem.

I have an MDI form with a toolbar. On the toolbar I have an icon.
Clicking on this icon calls a function which is designed to load a help
file. This works fine.

My problem is this. When the MDI form has focus and I press F1 to access
the same help file nothing happens. However, if I activate another form
within my application and press F1 the help file loads. Why does this
happen? Does windows prevent the loading of a help file from the MDI
parent form? Is there a solution?
