Move MDI form with no caption

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2010-04-30
Hi folks, I have an MDI form which has no caption and isn't resiable.  If possible I would like it so that if the user clicks and drags on one of the child forms it moves the MDI form.

Hope that make sense,


Watch Question

Hi all,

I have managed to solve this myself.  I remember that in another project I have a moveable form, by using this code on the child forms but using frmMain.hwnd rather than me.hwnd it allows the dragging of the main form from within in the child forms.


Will post request for this to be closed.
