I want to maximize my form size when i maximize my window. means when i double click on window to maximize then my form also get maximize with window, i used dock property bt still not getting proper result.
after i run the program, the form pop up showing no problem.however, when i click on the maximize button on the top right of the form, the form enlarge and fill the screen. but the components will not move accordingly.
I am using VB 2005 express edition and I need to develop a simple application. It should open a certain program (called MyMobiler) when a button is clicked. So far, I haven't managed to start it maximized (using shell (programpath, vbMaximizedFocus)), it always opens restored, although trying with notepad works (notepad opens maximized if i put vbMaximizedFocus). What else could I try? Here's my code
Public Class Form1 Private Sub Label1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) End Sub[code]....
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?
I want to maximize my mdi child automatically by setting WindowState to Maximize. But it looks like this.. why is this happening? but if I restore it and maximize it again its body now occupies the mdiparent space. To aim is not enough. You must hit.
Is there is any option to send a message to a window to "press" on the maximize button? I thought using the sendmessage API but I don't really know how, I alreday got the window handle, the problem is how to send the message?
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.
I need to create a form in such a way that when i run it the form will open in maximize i.e,the top three box with be like the following Attachment 71929 Normally when we run a form it is in the following pattern:Attachment 71928
I tried with the maximize box but it is for enabling and disabling the maximize button.
I have a tutorial Application (in VB.NET 2005) for MS Office 2007 and have some Exercises for Users. When User clicks on given Exercise (for example: MS Excel), this Application minimize and launch related Excel file through program with Modal Form over Excel Application containing Exercise text in Label and Button to Submit the Exercise. User performs that given task and submit it by click on the given Button. This will check that file, close it and maximize the Application again for next Exercise.
My problem is When User perform the Exercise and click on Submit button, it checks the file, close it and didn't maximize the Tutorial Application all the time. Sometime it Minimize / Maximize properly, but sometime it doesn't Maximizes. (I can see it running in Task Manager)I have used the following code:
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?

I need to do this in the MDI: Generate Form1 to maximize the potential in MDI. And mdi form to generate second Form2 order has always been above Form1. When clicking on the form 1 form2 disappear under it. Normally, when you click on the form1 Form2 hides under it. All must appear in the MDI.
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.
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]...
I cannot begin to explain how often I have tried to remove the Maximize button from the top of my form window.. I know that it can be disabled via properties, also that it can be removed if I disable both the maximize and minimize buttons, BUT I need the minimize button, just not the maximize button
How can I put the childform in the center of it parent while in a maximize state because If I maximize it then they the child will stack on the left side of the parent and will have long empty space on the right side.
How do I remove the maximize button from a form? I've already disabled it but it still shows up, it just doesn't work. I want a form with only the close and minimize buttons. It's a Windows Form Application and I'm using Visual Studio 2010.
I am trying to create my own title bar, but left-double-click does not maximize/restore the form; however, double-clicking any of the remaining buttons on my mouse (right, middle, 'forward', and 'back') maximizes/restore the form. This 'feature' is caused by MouseDown event. If the MouseDown event is removed,the DoubleClick event operates as expected.Can both events be used concurrently (at the same time) with out any loss of functionality?
my project is on the verge of completion and a large part of the credit goes to daniweb.now 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...
[code] Actually,I m doing notepad application,my problem is when ever click the form maximize button automatically form is resized .. same like that my richtextbox control also maximized. this is the my scenario.
I am currently working on a program in VB that is 480,600 and am using a panel with a picturebox inside of it so that I can use scroll bars to view a chart in the picturebox since my form will be so small. Since viewing a large chart is pretty irritating using scroll bars to some, what properties can I enable or disable to get the panel and picturbox to expand also when the Form Maximize button is clicked rather than staying the same size up in the top corner?
I have a child form is form1 and parent form is mainform. You can see form1 below at picture1. I want when i maximize form1 it like picture2. Normally, when i maximize form1 , it doesn't like i expect.
can't seem to figure out the solution to. I have a form within a form that works fine. However when I want to maximize the form the top of it goes behind the menu bar rather than just below it as I would expect. Also, when I minimize the form it simply minimizes and hides behind the status bar at the bottom. I've tried adjust the location coordinates, window state, start location.
I'm attempting to recreate the windows maximize/restore button, where when clicked it will either send the window to its previous state or put the window in full screen BUT fitted with the taskbar visible.
I have searched for an answer to this but have not found anything satisfactory but basically my MDI parent and MDI child both need to use an icon under my resources.When the Main form opens its child form the child keeps turning the normally sized icon into a large stupidly sized icon which throws out the layout of the menu strip.The additional thing is I deliberately tell the child not to have an icon when maximised or when initially called, yet the icon insists on going to a large size every time I open the child form.The Icon is 32x32 and here is the initialisation code of the parent,[code]
