You are trying to use the Singleton pattern, but you did it imperfectly. An MDI child form can be created more than once, you will have to set the singleton instance back to Nothing when it gets destroyed. Do so with the FormClosing event:

Protected Overrides Sub OnFormClosed(ByVal e As FormClosedEventArgs)
    anInstance = Nothing
End Sub

You will also need to do something reasonable when an existing instance is displayed again. It might not be in the right state. This code really belongs in the MDI parent, but you can limp along with this:

        If anInstance Is Nothing Then
            anInstance = New frmDaftarBarang
            If anInstance.WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized Then
                anInstance.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal
            End If
        End If
        Return anInstance

Do note that this gets ugly when you use the singleton to do things other than child activation. It is really rather a bad idea to use the pattern. It is fine on your MdiParent, there can only ever be one parent and when it gets closed then the program terminates anyway. But those same rules don't apply to a child. Move child instance management code to the parent class, that's where it belongs.
