I would like to maximize a window by double-clicking a control inside of it, not only by clicking the maximize button. Also, when window is maximized, another double-click on the control would restore it.
How to do that?
Thanks.

Just write code behind the control that you want to click on that will change the window state.

me.windowstate=vbmaximized

me.windowstate=vbnormal

You can access the form that the UserControl is on using the Parent property like this:

Private Sub UserControl_DblClick()
    If (Usercontrol.Parent.Windowstate = vbMaximized) Then
        Usercontrol.Parent.Windowstate = vbNormal
    Else
        Usercontrol.Parent.Windowstate = vbMaximized
    EndIf
End Sub
