MDI Maximized children forms without controlbox
I have been searching the web and everywhere I asked the question, the answer is that it is a Microsoft Bug. Well instead of telling me that it is a bug, how do I fix this?
I have a parent form (frmMain), a welcome/startup (or background) form (frmWelcome) and other child forms for data capturing. The idea is that when the program runs, the welcome form is displayed and stays displayed as a type of "background page", displaying outstanding jobs and other system info.
All forms, when opened, must be maximized, thus eliminating the need for the minimize box or maximize box but still having the X button to close the form. In theory this task is easy, but sure enough it's not. I have created the same interface in VB6 but C# has problems with it.
When I load a child form, it is maximized but then the minimize and restore bown buttons appear with the close (X) button. When I click the restore down button, all the forms (including be "background form") is reduced in size. How can it be that when I set the property in code and in design time that it still shows it?
