in vb6 (sp6) I have an MDI window which has a left aligned control  - the control is fixed and does not vary in width, how can I calculate the remaining area of the client (so I can create an mdi child window which is 50pix smaller than in width and height)

try something like:

Private Sub mCenterActiveWindow_Click()

offSetWidth = 0
offSetHeight = 0

    If Not Me.ActiveForm Is Nothing Then
        If Not Me.ActiveForm.WindowState = vbNormal Then Me.ActiveForm.WindowState = vbNormal
        Me.ActiveForm.Left = 0
        Me.ActiveForm.Top = 0
        Me.ActiveForm.Width = Me.Width - IIf(LeftPanelControl.Visible, LeftPanelControl.Width, 0) - offSetWidth
        Me.ActiveForm.Height = Me.Height - IIf(LeftPanelControl.Visible, LeftPanelControl.Height, 0) - offSetHeight
    End If
End Sub

hope this helps
