I have seen some similar threads, but this is not the same issue (I don't believe it is).
I have 2 RadForms, one is a MDI parent and the other is a MDI child. As mentioned, these both inherit from a RadForm.
Everything (nearly everything) was working correctly until I decided that I wanted the child to be maximised when opened inside the MDI parent. I used this bit of code:
| Private Sub WorkCentreLogsToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles WorkCentreLogsToolStripMenuItem.Click
| frmWorkCentreLog.MdiParent = Me
| frmWorkCentreLog.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized
| End Sub
I should point out that inside my MDI parent, I use the windows ToolStrip and MenuStrip. The reason for this is that I prefer thier interface and how easily they are to add.
I removed both of these to see if it was them that were causing the issue I was having.
Now, the issue is this: When the child window is maximised, the parent form does not have any way of minimising or changing the window state of the child form. Nor does it display the title of the child window in the parent window's title bar (This is the same issue as others have had, but their solution was to use RadForm rather than ShapedForm. I have not used the ShapedForm at all).
If someone could help me identify the cause and solution to this, I would be greatful.
