It works as easy as the following:

ShowWindow(MdiChild1.Handle, SW_HIDE);

In previous VCL and/or Windows versions, this caused problems as the following (dated) text shows. Thanks to Yaroslav Pasichnyk for pointing out that this document was outdated.

You can't hide MDI children.
Windows does weird things when you try to hide
MDI children, so VCL doesn't permit it.
