hi, I am trying to center mdi child form in the mdi parent form.
I had a centerform function written already, what events should I call from?
Right now I called the function from mousemove event. So every time I resize the form, I have to move the mouse on the form to center the form in mdi main form. Otherwise it will stay un-centered. I tried to call it from form_resize event, but It does not center the form when I move the border of the form. And there is no event called after_resize :(

So what should I do to call centerform function after I resize the form?

Thank you very much and have a nice day!

:)

frmChild.Move (mdiParent.ScaleWidth - frmChild.Width) / 2, (mdiParent.ScaleHeight - frmChild.Height) / 2

Looks like this function goes in the MDIform_Resize with out any problems, I would move it out of the mousemove event if I were you.

I'm guilty of one of my own pet peeves, people who don't read the question thoroughly!

ny971181 already had the centering code, s/he just wanted to know where to put it, which you did comment, and should answer.

ok well, I'll answer, but ny971181 said that the centre function was in the form resize event and didn't work, but i tryed it and it seemed to go quiet hapily, so ny971181 did it work?
