    [2008] MDI parent in front of windows task bar

    Hi,

    My MDI parent form sizes itself so that the activity field (with the start button etc) doesnīt show. This happens every now and then and I canīt figure out why.

    Of course I want to see the activity field, so Iīd appreciate any help.

    Thanks.

    Fuga.

    The "activity field"? Do you mean the Windows Task Bar, with the Start button at one end and the clock at the other?

    Yes, thatīs what I mean.

    I translated it from swedish, thatīs why I called it activity field.

    Also, my question is for Windows XP.

    Sorry for being unclear.

    Thanks for reply.

    Sorry for bumping, but I thought that since the title was wrong, people missed it.

    I have now concluded that the problem occurs when the app is activated by either by the user pressing it in the task bar, or by using alt+tab.

    Is this some sort of bug? Surely Iīm not the only one with this problem.
