    Removing Scroll bars from MDI Main

    Hi there,

    Please have a look on attached file, this is MDI Parent form, when i move child form to lower bottom side, both horizontal and vertical scroll bars appears on MDI Main form. I don't want to show scroll bars on main mdi form, or in other words how can i hide scroll bars from main mdi form.

    I found several answers on google but not even a single work.
    Autoscroll property is also false but still i am getting scroll bars on parent mdi form.

    Please help me out how to remove scroll bars from mdi main parent form.

    Thanks

    You can't remove the scroll bars (at least not with managed code), but since the mdiClient is simply another control in the forms collection, you get grab a reference to it and resize it so the scroll bars don't show.

    vb.net Code:
    1. 'find the mdiClient in the controls collection
    2.         For Each ctl As Control In Me.Controls
    3.             If TypeOf ctl Is MdiClient Then
    4.                 'got the control, so cast it
    5.                 Dim mdiClientControl As MdiClient = DirectCast(ctl, MdiClient)
    6.                 'undock it
    7.                 mdiClientControl.Dock = DockStyle.None
    8.                 'resize it
    9.                 mdiClientControl.Bounds = Me.ClientRectangle
    10.                 mdiClientControl.Height += 20
    11.                 mdiClientControl.Width += 20
    12.                 'set the anchors
    13.                 mdiClientControl.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Bottom Or AnchorStyles.Left Or AnchorStyles.Right Or AnchorStyles.Top
    14.  
    15.                 'bail out
    16.                 Exit For
    17.             End If
    18.         Next
    Process control doesn't give you good quality, it gives you consistent quality.
    Good quality comes from consistently doing the right things.

    Vague general questions have vague general answers.

    That code starts by setting the Bounds of the MdiClient control to the ClientRectangle of the form. That means that its Location will be (0, 0). Just as the code then modifies the Height and Width properties, you would need to modify the Top property to move it down the height of the menu. I would expect something like this to work:
    vb.net Code:
    1. mdiClientControl.Top += Me.MenuStrip1.Height
