mdi form resizebegin event not getting raised

I have a main form that is a mdi container. I have a 2nd form which is a mdi child of the main form. I handle both the main form and 2nd forms resizebegin and resizeend events. If the 2nd mdi child form is maximized to fill the main forms application space the events don't get raised. I'm trying to suppress some other functionality when the the form is resizing. Anyone know how to override this behaviour or anternate solutions?

You can set a global resizing flag at the MdiParent level when the resize begins/ends and check that whenever the WindowState of the MdiChild is maximized.

...or how about you simply check to see if the windowstate is maximized in the Resize() event?

    Private Sub SomeMidChild_Resize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Resize
        If Me.WindowState <> FormWindowState.Maximized Then

            Debug.Print("SomeMdiChild Resize()")

        End If
    End Sub
