Ragi, I tried the information in that link, in different way and it worked!
Thanks

By the way, if somebody want the code in C# is:


        private void Form2_Resize(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
 
            if (this.WindowState == FormWindowState.Maximized)
            {
                this.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None;
            }
            else
            {
                this.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.Sizable;
            }
 
        }

Open in new window
