The MDIchild window's size (windowstate) cannot be setting to Maximal (2). ( You "can" set it, but it don't work.) I found this problem in VB5.0 . But this problem never appeared in VB3.0/4.0. What should I do to set maximal windows size of MDIchild, or this is a bug of vb5.0 ?

1) use a move method to resize midichild form based upon form size properties of your MIDI form.
2) This characteristic results from the Micorsoft development philosophy of "When it's fixed, break it!"

This method might be useful to solve my problem. But I had found another method to do this. Calling the API function "showwindow"
. Such that window can show any size/style what we want.
