MDI FORM (VB.NET 2003)

Hi Experts,

I have created a MDI Application which loads Form2 as child MDI...

* - Form1, there is a button (with images on them), I click on Button and Form2 loads in as MDI child.

* If I Maximize my MDI child - Form2, it hides behind the button (the button stays visible in the foregreound, not masked by the Form2 (MDI) window.

I want it to go to background.

Please help.

Thanks Idle_Mind,

Is there a way to maximize the FORM2 MDI?

Me.LayoutMdi(MdiLayout.????)
Just set its WindowState to Maximized before you Show() it:

    Dim F2 As New Form2
    F2.MdiParent = Me
    F2.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized
    F2.Show()
My code is:

I added this in based on your suggestion: "Forms (intloopindex).WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximaized"

But it didn't work :(

I'm sure your code works ;)

For intloopindex As Imteger = 0 to -
Forms (intloopindex) = New Form2
Forms (intloopindex).Text = ""
Forms (intloopindex).MdiParent = Me
Forms (intloopindex)
Next Forms intloopindex
Me.LayoutMdi(MdiLayout.Cascade)

Open in new window

What is the goal here?...to maximize all currently open Mdi children?
is that possible?
To be honest Idle_Mind, it's not that important ;)

Roberto
Thanks again (friend) :)
To maximize the children:
If Me.MdiChildren.Count > 0 Then
            Me.MdiChildren(0).WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized
        End If

Open in new window


*MdiChildren SHARE the WindowState so maximizing one child maximizes them all.
