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.

silly answer...

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?
