how to make a mdiform fixed size(can't be resized or maximize) as there is no property like border style in mdi.

Recommended Answers

declare 2 constants one for height and one for width and change the height and width in the resize event. Maximize will throw an error so you'll have to trap that.

did a little more digging, set WindowState to vbNormal then set the height and width. maximize can fire but it'll snap back to normal and no resizing can take place.
