Programmatically Maximize An External Application's Window?

Sep 4, 2009

I have an application right now that starts a process, then opens a file associated with that process (system.diagnostics.process.start("WM.exe")), however, the way they save, there is a window within a window. It's like in photoshop cs3 when you have many windows within the big window of the application. Right now I use an api call to findwindow which is the application itself, but within that I need to find the subwindow, of which I know the apptitle, and then I need to set its windowstate to maximized. Does anyone know how this can be done? I think there's a way to hook a handle, but how does one also maximize?

Form Maximize At Show ?

Oct 12, 2009

I having trouble with the WindowsState Maximized Property.  I have a MDI WinForm application with a number of Child forms. I setup up each Child form with the WindowsState Maximized Property in the Property screen of the VS 2008.  The MDI Container form is also Maximized.When I run the application, the MDI Container opens Maximized as it should.  When I try to open a Child form it opens partaly Maximized.  The MenuStrip and ToolStrip are Maximized including the MenuStrip having the Close, Maximized, and Minimize controls in it.  On the form, the BindingNavigator and the Form itself is the size they would be if the WindowState was Normal.If I Minimize the MDI Container form and bring it back the Child form will be fully Maximized as it should be.

Form Minimize And Maximize Events

May 18, 2009

I am drawing graphics on the screen and when the form resizes it needs to clear and redraw all the graphics b/c the form is a different size and the graphics are supposed to scale with the size of the form. Well that works, but not for maximize or restore. So I had to look on the internet for how to capture the maximize and restore event. I got it from here and it does capture it, but it does all the events (such as redrawing the graphics) first and then it maximizes, which totally defeats the purpose. I tried to do Application. DoEvents but it still doesn't do it. Any way to have the graphics redraw AFTER it maximizes?

Private Const SC_RESTORE As Int32 = &HF120 'When a Form is Restored
Private Const SC_MINIMIZE As System.Int32 = &HF020& 'When a Form is Minimized
Private Const SC_MAXIMIZE As System.Int32 = &HF030& 'When a Form is Maximized
Private Const WM_SYSCOMMAND As System.Int32 = &H112 'Minimized/Maximized/Restore comes when we have this msg Const WM_NCLBUTTONDBLCLK As Int32 = &HA3 'When User Clicks on the Title Bar

Hide The Maximize Process Of A Form?

Aug 2, 2007

I have a form, with a lot of controls on it, and I make the form to be a mdi-form. When the application begins, the main form will show the mdi form, and maxmizes it.

My question is, the maxmize process of the mdi-form is showing to the user, that's very bad looking. We can see the mdi-form show itself on the screen with it's original size, and then change it's size to mazmize itself. During the process, it look like all the controls on the mdi-form are shining.

I want to hide the maxmize process to be not seen, and make the mdi-form visible AFTER it's Maxmize process. But I don't know how to do this.

I tried this:

Mdi-form.visible=0 in the form_load of the mdi-form, but I don't know where to do the Mdi-form.visible=1. I can't find the event of Maxmize process.

Maximize Textbox On Form Every Time?

Jun 8, 2012

It's been a while since I used VB4 to write a program. Now I have VS 2010 Express and I want to write a simple text editor.

My first question is, I have a text box I put onto a form with a menu strip. When the program is run, I want my text box (my main editing area) to be the biggest size on the form. How do I do this? Is there an automatic way to do this? Or do I have to set the text box's x, y, width, and height properties when the form loads? Which form event would I put this in? I cannot seem to find Form_Load or Form_Activate. [code]...

Mdi Child Maximize, Form Tiling And Alignment Of Controls?

Jun 22, 2010

my project is on the verge of completion and a large part of the credit goes to m stuck with a very annoying problm. ive googled the whole day but to no avail.m using visual studion 2005 and access 07.ive clubbed these three problms together cause i thought they might be related somehow...

1) i want the mdi child screen to be maximized. but on the first attempt only the control box goes to the top rite corner. however on the 2nd attempt it gets sorted out.ive tried to set the initial state to maximized but with same result. please help

2) whn the form loads it gives this tiling effect.. like the effect a tube light gives whn it is switced on...which is very annoying.
ive search for the result and some recommended to change the resolution of the user screen which is not acceptable to me.cant i change the resolution of my application depending on the user's resolution.

3) whn the form is maximized i want its user control or contents to change their alignment accordingly...anchor property only changes the size however the ideal thing will be to change the controls position w.r.t the container or form...
