VB.Net Windows mdi child form issues
Any help solving my dilemma will be greatly appreciated. I inherited a project from another developer and have been asked to make some last minute changes that turned out to be more than I bargained for. The mdichid form has lots of controls, many of them labels and text boxes, but also some list boxes. The controls were put into group boxes, which I do not understand the rationale for doing, but I do not want to change this unless absolutely necessary. The biggest issues are that the child form will not resize by clicking on the border as most windows do. The child form also does not completely fill the open space in the parent form unless both are maximized. I have run into a strange problem also, which is that when I do into the properties window of the design view of the child form and attempt to change the start position to "Centerof ParentForm" some lines of code (FriendwithEvents)get deleted by the editor and I get error messages. In a nutshell, my child form will not resize by clicking ad dragging the border, the child form does not completely fill the empty space in the parent form, when I maximize the child form the vertical scroll bar on the parent form disappears. Please help. My livelihood and my sanity are in some jeopardy at present. I have Googled for the better part of a day and nothing I have found helps.
