I'm using c# 4.0. I have a form that has a title bar. I want to suppress the ability to maximize the form by double clicking it.

I've tried

 
private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.StandardDoubleClick, false);
this.UpdateStyles();
}

Open in new window


but that doesn't do it. I've tried trapping the click event but don't know how to suppress it.

Ideas?

Do you allow resizing of the window? If not, make sure you specify the max window size. If you do allow resizing, I don't think this can be changed.
