I've been trying to come up with a good way to make MDI child windows be maximized when they are created.  I have a way for the window to be maximized by default, but the mainframe doesn't know about it.  ie. the system buttons are not displayed in the menubar.

You need the following in your MDI child frame class:

void CYourMDIChildFrame::ActivateFrame(int nCmdShow)
{
  if ((bWantMDIMaximize) && (nCmdShow == -1))
    nCmdShow = SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED;
 
  CMDIChildWnd::ActivateFrame(nCmdShow);
}

I forgot to mention that I was using MFC v2.5 with VC++ 1.52c.  There is no CMDIChildFrame class!

The CYourMDIChildFrame would be derived from the MFC class CMDIChildWnd. I have called my class ChildFrame because thats what it is a frame window for MDI child windows.
