Suppress form maximization on title double-click

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);

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.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        const int HTCAPTION = 0x2;
        const int WM_NCLBUTTONDBLCLK = 0xA3;

        protected override void WndProc(ref Message m)
            switch (m.Msg)
                case WM_NCLBUTTONDBLCLK:
                    if (m.WParam.ToInt32() == HTCAPTION)
            base.WndProc(ref m);
