Hi !

How do I disable the MaxButton on a MDIForm, the property "BorderStyle" does not
exist like on a normal Form ?
Is there any API calls that I can make to disable it ????
How do I make that call ?

Thanks

As far as I know there is no way to turn off the Max button on the parent MDIform.  Now you can turn off the max button on a MDIChild form.   The reason for this is  that it is possible to have form that are larger than the MDIform.  The max box allows you to see everything.  Give me an Idea of what you are trying to do and maybe I can be of more help

Thanks for your answer.

What I'm trying to do is to make a MDIForm that can not be
resized ( bigger than a given size ). U are supposed t be able to  make the MDIForm smaller but not enlarge it in any way.
I've come so far that I've made a non resizeable form but the problem comes when the user hits the "MAXBUTTON", then everything falls apart.
Can you help me with that ?
