Hi,

Using class wizard map the WindowProc function to ur child frame class and modify that function as


LRESULT CChildFrame::WindowProc(UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
     if((message == WM_NCLBUTTONDBLCLK) && (wParam == HTCAPTION))
     {
          AfxMessageBox("Hit Caption of child!!!");
          return 0;//I am terminating as I dont want my child frame to maximize!!!
     }
     return CMDIChildWnd::WindowProc(message, wParam, lParam);
}

That will give u access when user double clicks on caption bar.
Try it out.
