How do I hide the menu on the parent form in a MDI program?
Posted on 2007-11-14
I am currently writing an HMI for my company. The program needs to consist of multiple FULL screen forms and a few dialog forms. I want the program to be MDI so that there aren't multiple "Programs" - which are really just forms in my case, displayed on the taskbar. I am having a problem with the Menu showing up on the top of the parent form reguardless of what my settings for that form are (Maximized, No border style ect.). The Menu up there will not serve a purpose and is an eye sore. So with that here are my questions:
1. Is there a way to completely hide this menu that appears when you set a form to "IsMDIContainer"?
2. Would it be better to just set the form setting "Show in Taskbar" to false?
3. If #2 is the way to go, what are the con's to this method?
I appologize for my lack of knowledge in this subject - I am a relatively new coder. Thank in advance for you help!
