I am using (modeless) CFormView windows, all with CMDIChildWnd frames. Some of them have locked sizes. Due to the sizes being locked I do not want them to be able to maximize (that just looks really weird). In addition, if a maximized window calls one of these locked size windows, I want the locked size window to open restored (not maximized like Windows wants). I have tried using ShowWindow(SW_RESTORE) from both the view and the frame. It appears as if nothing happens when the command is processed. When I try using SW_MINIMIZE in place of SW_RESTORE the window minimizes. Why is it that SW_RESTORE doesn't work? Am I using it in the wrong place? Any suggestions or other recommendations?
Any help is much appreciated,
