Problem using Menustrip RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    I have an MDI application that uses the menustrip control.

    When the MDI Child window is maximized, there is no way to restore its size. There's a restore on the MDI parent but that restores the entire application.

    However, when I use the Main menu, there are two sets of Maximize/Minimize controls, one for the MDI parent and one for the MDI Child.

    The Mainmenu control adds a band that is used to display the Maximize/Minimize controls but the band the menustrip creates is not used to do the same.

    What am I doing wrong?

  • Hi:

    I figured out what the problem was! I had two text buttons hiding the Maximize/Miniminize icons on the Menustrip!

  • Perhaps something in your code?  Do you have code for the maximized event? Is there anything custom about your MDI child?

    I cannot reproduce this with a new project using one MdiParent, one MdiChild, and one MenuStrip.  The child's control box and buttons merge with the MenuStrip as expected.

  • No, I do not have any code in Minimize/Maximize events.
