Hello.

I am still using the ShapedForm, which I started with a year ago since it had better performance back then, maybe it is time to switch to the RadForm?

Anyway, the problem happens when a user has their start-menu set to "auto-hide", then they cannot access their startmenu using their mouse if the ShapedForm is maximized. Pressing the Start-key on keyboard works though.

Thankful for any help in this matter, 

 - Joel

Hi Joel Sanderi,

The ShapedForm class inherits from the Form class. In order to hide the default titlebar, the ShapedForm class has the FormBorderStyle property set to None. This setting is the reason why you are not able to access the auto-hide task bar. If you try with a regular form with FormBorderStyle set to None, the behavior will be the same.

However, if you start using RadForm you will have not such issues. Its FormBorderStyle property by default is set to Sizable, so you will able to successfully access the task bar by the mouse pointer.

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

All the best,
