I have found how to make mdi parent borders present with the createparams procedure, but i want to make the parent borders disappear. I have my parent with "none" border style selected, but when I maximize it, there is still the 3d border around the edges. Is there an api value i can pass to createparams to make these go away?

Check the SystemParametersInfo API Call...

I seem to remeber there is a option for SetBorder and SetNonClientMetrixBorder etc...

I am not sure when I would use that api call. Could you give me an example?

Try the following :

                      In OnCreate-method of Main form put

                      begin
                        SetWindowLong(Handle, GWL_EXSTYLE, GetWindowLong(Handle, GWL_EXSTYLE) and
                      not WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE);
                        SetWindowPos(Handle, 0,0,0,0,0, SWP_NOMOVE or SWP_NOSIZE or
                      SWP_FRAMECHANGED);
                      end;
