Greetings,
Another question about vb. I need to maximize a form, but my status bar(the bottom of my form) is covered by the win95 taskbar.
I saw many apps that have capabilities of displaying a maximized form upto the taskbar. how do they do so?

If you do the following:

  Form1.WindowState = vbMaximized

it should do the trick.  If that doesn't work there are API calls that I know to get the Screen Width/Height and then you can adjust your form accordingly.  Let me know and if the above does not work I will give you the API calls to do this.
