Hi
In VB, Normal form has a Borderstyle property that can set to "no border".
(When set to no border this form fill all of screen)
but One mdi form has not this property.
I want my mdi form has not border and fill all of screen.

I'm having dificulties copying an pasting. Everything goes to a single line in VB.
But maybe you'll have more luck.

I'm not sure if this will work with MDI forms.

According to my experience, I don't think it's possible to change MDI form border style. I mean, have you ever seen a MDI form without border (in any application)?

Try this:


Private Declare Function SetWindowLong Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowLongA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As Long) As Long
Private Const WS_CAPTION = &HC00000
Private Const GWL_EXSTYLE = (-20)
Private Const GWL_STYLE = (-16)
Private Const WS_BORDER = &H800000
Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long
Private Const WM_PAINT = &HF

Private Declare Function GetWindowLong Lib "user32" Alias "GetWindowLongA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long) As Long


Private Sub MDIForm_Click()
    Dim wStyle As Long
    wStyle = GetWindowLong(Me.hwnd, GWL_STYLE)
    wStyle = wStyle Xor WS_CAPTION
    wStyle = wStyle Xor WS_BORDER
    SetWindowLong Me.hwnd, GWL_STYLE, wStyle
    Me.WindowState=vbMaximized

You can move it from click() to paint() or load() if you wish.
