Hello,
i'm having a crazy time trying to get my child forms to be maximized.

i have: windows form as mdi parent  - windowstate set to maximum.
on it is a radmenu.
i have a child windows form in which the windowstate is set to maximize.

i do the below code to load the child:
        
frmCPBase.MdiParent = Me
frmCPBase.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized
gsResize(frmCPBase, frmCPBase.pnlMain)
frmCPBase.Show()
  
    Public Sub gsResize(ByVal aoForm As Form, ByVal aoPnl As Panel)
        Try
            '* Center the MDI Child
            If aoForm.WindowState = 2 Then      'maximized
                Dim yInt As Integer = Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Height / 2 - aoForm.Height / 2
  
  
                aoForm.Location = New Point(Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Width / 2 - aoForm.Width / 2, 120) 
                If aoForm.Location.X < 0 Then
                    aoForm.Location = New Point(0, aoForm.Location.Y)
                End If
                If aoForm.Location.Y < 0 Then
                    aoForm.Location = New Point(aoForm.Location.X, 0)
                End If
                If aoForm.Left < 0 Then
                    aoForm.Location = New Point(0, aoForm.Location.Y)
                End If
            End If
  
            '* Center the frame
            If aoForm.WindowState = 2 Then
                aoPnl.Location = New Point((aoForm.Width / 2) - (aoPnl.Width / 2), (aoForm.Height / 2) - (aoPnl.Height / 2))
            Else
                aoPnl.Location = New Point((aoForm.Width / 2) - (aoPnl.Width / 2), (aoForm.Height / 2) - (aoPnl.Height / 2))
            End If
  
        Catch ex As Exception
  
        End Try
  
    End Sub

but when i run, the child is NOT maximized. when i maximize the mdi form (running by clicking the control max button on the mdi form), THEN the child form is maximized.

i did this with another menu - exactly the same only NOT using the radmenu and it works fine. is there something in the radmenu you need to set for this??

thanks for ANY help - i'm about to get rid of the telerik radmenu...if i cannot resolve. i have it set up as the "main menu=true"

i have the radmenu set up as:

thanks for the help. i tried the example you sent and it worked fine. what i did find out is that if you have a radMenu on a radPanel, it will not maximize the child. if there is not a radMenu directly on the form, it does not play nice. i have the radMenu on a radPanel to add logo and other info on the top of the form. i faked it out by placing a radmenu on the bottom of the page which is not used and built my radMenu in a radPanel as my main menu. that acts just as it should loading children. not pretty but it works.

Hi Mary,

Thank you for your posts.

I was able to reproduce this behavior on my end. However the reason seems to be the gsResize() function that you are using. I am not sure what is the point of relocating the maximized window but you can try not moving the child window but only the panel:

Public Sub gsResize(ByVal aoForm As Form, ByVal aoPnl As Panel)
        Try
            aoPnl.Location = New Point((aoForm.Width / 2) - (aoPnl.Width / 2), (aoForm.Height / 2) - (aoPnl.Height / 2))
        Catch ex As Exception
 
        End Try
 
    End Sub

If you do not wish to change the gsResize() function then you can try setting the maximized state of the child window after the function was called:

gsResize(frmCPBase, frmCPBase.pnlMain)
frmCPBase.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized

I hope this will help you. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to write.

All the best,

thank you for following up on this. i've come up with a workable solution for me.

not sure if this is a bug or what but if the radmenu is not directly on the form, it does not maximze the child even if set to do so, nor does it set the sizes correctly. i cannot always set this to maximize as the user may want it to be minimized.

my solution - basically I:
  • have one radmenu docked to the bottom with no items in it - directly on the form. this makes it behave correctly - without it, the 2nd menu/children do not do what they should
  • have a radPanel - put my graphics, etc...items i wanted in the panel -
  • have a radMenu on the radPanel docked to the bottom with my items
  • children set to maximize.
  • just show it - the only thing i needed in the Resize event was to set the top when NOT maximized.
  • so there's no need to set any sizes

thanks for your help on this.

Guys ,

Do you have a simple solution to change theme or background color of existing Frame with RibbonBar menu. Just anything that let people recognize that they switched the mode.

So I tried to change theme on Load event .. does not work .. SImple  BackColor does not work  also.
Do you have any simple solution for it?  
private void RadForm_Frame_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
 {
    radMenu1.ThemeName = "Vista";
    radRibbonBar1.ThemeName = "Vista";
}

Thank you ,
Victoria.

Hello Victoria,

In order for the ThemeName property to work correctly, you should first load the theme that you want to use. This can be achieved by dropping the desired theme component from the toolbox to the form in Visual Studio's designer. If the theme you are using using is not in the toolbox, then you should it load it as it is described in this help article.

If this doesn't help, please provide more details about your scenario and requirements and I will do my best to assist you.
