In VB.NET I set the property
IsMDIParent=true
FormBorderStyle=none
But the Form still has 2 pixels border. How can I remove it?

Hi f_asmaa,

you have to use

IsMDIContainer = True
FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None

and it works as a charm

f_asmaa,

set to the form a mainmenu control, keep these settings and start the application - you will see that over the menu control there is no border. the border you see is not on the form but inside it

Don't worry

In order to hide this border. I set the left=-2 and top=-2, I also increased the size by 4 pixels for both width and height. (That is because I need to display a picture as background). But I faced another problem, the MDI parent form size increases more than required if you set th left and top to negative values, that causes the background picture to partially repeat itself. Anyway I found a solution for his problem but I want to report this as a bug.
