Hi,

I am trying to develop an MDI Application in C# Which should appear like SDI. To achieve this, We have created a parent form, and make all other forms MDI children.


We keep one children active in parent form. All the navigation is controlled from tollbar, menubar present on parent. We open child form in maximized state and its Control box, ShowInTaskBar properties are also set to false. But still it shows child form's top bar on some forms, while all other forms behave nicely.

For that you have to remove the close button of ChildFrame and maximize the child window when it activates...

This will do both


Override PreCreateWindow, ActivateFrame of CChildFrame and do the follwoing


BOOL CChildFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
      // TODO: Modify the Window class or styles here by modifying
      //  the CREATESTRUCT cs

      cs.style &= ~WS_SYSMENU;
      if( !CMDIChildWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs) )
            return FALSE;

      return TRUE;
}


void CChildFrame::ActivateFrame(int nCmdShow)
{
      if (nCmdShow == -1)
        nCmdShow = SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED;
            
      CMDIChildWnd::ActivateFrame(nCmdShow);
}

Good Luck
