Form Resize Handle

Posted on 2006-05-12

I have a form whose border style is set to sizable. This allows me to resize form at run-time. Now on the right-hand bottom corner, I get resizing handle (diagonal lines). How can I get rid of this handle? Please note that my form does not have minimize or maximize or close controls. Also there is no text property set.

    Hi vj_mi,

    Is the resize handle part of a status bar on the form? This is the case in Delphi (the status bar can supply a resize gripper).

    Is there a way I can upload attachments to this website so that I can mark the handler?

    You just replace the question ID (qid) with the number, like this:

    On the page it describes the allowable types.
