Hello

I am having a problem with the following function call:

     m_oForm.SetBounds(0, 0, fmdi.ClientRectangle.Width, fmdi.ClientRectangle.Height)

Before execution of the above function, Form fmdi does not have
scroll bars. After exectuion Scrollbars appear on Form fmdi.

any idea what I am doing wrong ???

Hi mat0974,

what are you trying to achieve, are you trying to fill a mdi child in the parent without maximizing ?

if you are use this

Private Sub FillActiveChildFormToClient()
 
               Dim child As Form = Me.ActiveMdiChild
 
               Dim mdiClientArea As Rectangle = Rectangle.Empty
 
               Dim c As Control
 
               For Each c In Me.Controls
 
                    If TypeOf c Is MdiClient Then
 
                         mdiClientArea = c.ClientRectangle
 
                    End If
 
               Next
 
               child.Bounds = mdiClientArea
 
          End Sub

I want to stretch form m_oForm to fit in the Client area of Form
fmdi. I do not want to see scroll bars on form fmdi.

(I am migrating a VB6 Application to VBNET. In VB6 the function
used was Form.move())
