Dialog box does not position correctly using FormStartPosition

I cannot get my dialog box to display anywhere other than the top left corner.  I've seen posts where people claim that they have gotten this to work.  Any ideas???

HERE'S THE CODE...
RequestValidateForm frmValidate = new  RequestValidateForm();
frmValidate.requestValidateCtl1.oValidateResult = oValidateResult;
                              
frmValidate.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterParent;
                              
DialogResult oResult =  frmValidate.ShowDialog(this);

I'VE ALSO TRIED...
frmValidate.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual;
frmValidate.Location = new Point(SystemInformation.WorkingArea.Width / 2 - frmValidate.Size.Width / 2, SystemInformation.WorkingArea.Height - frmValidate.Size.Height);

AND THIS...
frmValidate.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual;
frmValidate.Top = 150;
frmValidate.Left = 150;

That code seems to work fine for me. Is it possible there is code in your RequestValidateForm form class that is repositioning the form or preventing the location from being set (a property/method override or some code setting top/left/location etc) ?

Which version of VS/C# are you using ?

I checked and there were no overrides.  What I DID find was that the form was set to Maximized, i.e. WindowState=Maximized.  It is working now :)  Thanks!
