HI,

When I resize my form you see the left en right border, but when I maximize the form
the left and right border dissappear.

I have tried to set de borderwidth of the form to 1, but even with borderwidth = 1
the borders disappear when the form is maximized.

Does anyone know a solution?

all borders "dissapear" when maximizing. they actually have negative coordonates.
if you want to also see the borders, you need to simulate the maximize or intercept it and modify the sizes.

here is an example for intercepting:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure FormResize(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
    resizing:boolean;
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.FormResize(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if (not resizing) and (left<0) then
  begin
    resizing:=true;
    width:=width-9;
    left:=0;
    height:=height-9;
    top:=0;
//    width:=width+1;
    resizing:=false;
  end;{}
end;

end.
