Silly question...

Is the form in your app or is it from an external app?

If it's your app, then set the ControlBox() property on the Form to False.

i dont want the controls removed, i want the whole blue line on top of a form in my app gone. the idea behind that is to make my own menu system bar. i just want that gone, is it possible or not?
