move minimised forms within panel with panels changes size

Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help, or posible?

I have a panel within formA that changes size depending on the user preference, however, if thay have formB open with in the panel, and formB is minimized, but they make the formA smaller, formB disappears.

Is there anyway i can move formBminimized state (title) to fit at the bottom of the panel?

I hope that makes sense?

The IsMdiContainer() Property of the Form is set to True to make it an MdiParent:

It looks more like he's using a 3D Panel and setting TopLevel() to False to load the "child" forms in it.

MDI stands for Multiple Document Interface. Its a form which hosts other forms inside. An example is Excel.
