    Hi Guys;
    I'm trying to figure out how to do a winform max size (where it goes over the taskbar on your desktop) similiar to the bookstore kiost sample demo application..

    any help would be appreciated.  I can't seem to find any documentation on this.

    cheers
    Charles

    Hello Charles Faramarzirad,

    In order to get the desired behavior, you should set the FormBorderStyle property of the form to None:
    this.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None; 

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    All the best,

    Hi ;
    Your code, "did not" do the trick.  it simply maximizes the form, it doesn't cover the task bar .

    here is my code, it's a basic form code.

    namespace

    WindowsFormsApplication1

     

    {

     

    partial class Form1

     

    {

     

    /// <summary>

     

     

    /// Required designer variable.

     

     

    /// </summary>

     

     

    private System.ComponentModel.IContainer components = null;

     

     

    /// <summary>

     

     

    /// Clean up any resources being used.

     

     

    /// </summary>

     

     

    /// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>

     

     

    protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)

     

    {

     

    if (disposing && (components != null))

     

    {

    components.Dispose();

    }

     

    base.Dispose(disposing);

     

    }

    #region

    Windows Form Designer generated code

     

     

    /// <summary>

     

     

    /// Required method for Designer support - do not modify

     

     

    /// the contents of this method with the code editor.

     

     

    /// </summary>

     

     

    private void InitializeComponent()

     

    {

     

    this.radThemeManager1 = new Telerik.WinControls.RadThemeManager();

     

     

    this.radThemeManager2 = new Telerik.WinControls.RadThemeManager();

     

     

    this.vistaTheme1 = new Telerik.WinControls.Themes.VistaTheme();

     

     

    this.telerikTheme1 = new Telerik.WinControls.Themes.TelerikTheme();

     

    ((System.ComponentModel.

    ISupportInitialize)(this)).BeginInit();

     

     

    this.SuspendLayout();

     

     

    //

     

     

    // Form1

     

     

    //

     

     

    this.AutoScaleDimensions = new System.Drawing.SizeF(6F, 13F);

     

     

    this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font;

     

     

    this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(298, 266);

     

     

    this.Name = "Form1";

     

     

    //

     

     

    //

     

     

    //

     

     

    this.RootElement.ShouldPaint = true;

     

     

    this.Text = "Form1";

     

     

    this.ThemeName = "Telerik";

     

     

    this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Form1_Load);

     

    ((System.ComponentModel.

    ISupportInitialize)(this)).EndInit();

     

     

    this.ResumeLayout(false);

     

     

    this.FormBorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.FormBorderStyle.None;

     

    }

    #endregion

     

    private Telerik.WinControls.RadThemeManager radThemeManager1;

     

     

    private Telerik.WinControls.RadThemeManager radThemeManager2;

     

     

    private Telerik.WinControls.Themes.VistaTheme vistaTheme1;

     

     

    private Telerik.WinControls.Themes.TelerikTheme telerikTheme1;

     

    }

    }



    please advise.
    thanks

    Hello Charles Faramarzirad,

    Please note that in the Bookstore Kiosk demo we are using a standard Microsoft Form.  However, I can notice from your code that you are using RadForm. RadForm does not support full coverage of the screen area, so I would suggest using the regular form with FormBorderStyle to None and RadTitleBar.

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Best wishes,
