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?

I think it would make more sense if you show us some picture.

Thank you CodeCruiser

I have attached 3 files,

First picture (OpenAt.jpg)  show the formA just opened, with Form B & C open within it.

Second picture (minimized.jpg) shows formA open and formB minimized,

Third picutire (reduced size.jpg) shows formA reduced and formB minimized, but can not see the minimized box.

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

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.
