    MDIChild from MDIChild - Showing Maximized Issue

    Hi all,

    I have an MDIChild that I am showing in maximized view which is fine; however, when I click on a button on this maximized MDIChild, it is supposed to show another MDIChild (look-up screen) which should be showing in Normal state and CenterParent, but the problem I am having is that the MDIChild lookup screen is also showing in maximized state instead of normal state. I have attempted many things (like setting dock = none) and it doesn't make a difference. Any ideas?

    From the MainForm
    vb Code:
    1. Private Sub Accounting_BankReconciliation_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    2.                                                     ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Accounting_BankReconciliation.Click
    3.  
    4.         Try
    5.             Dim LoadBankReconciliation As New BankReconciliation
    6.  
    7.             With LoadBankReconciliation
    8.                 .MdiParent = Me
    9.                 .Dock = DockStyle.Fill
    10.                 .Show()
    11.             End With
    12.         Catch ex As Exception
    13.             MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString(), _
    14.                             "Exception", _
    15.                             MessageBoxButtons.OK, _
    16.                             MessageBoxIcon.Error, _
    17.                             MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)
    18.         End Try
    19.     End Sub

    From the loaded MDIChild - to load the second MDIChild look-up form.
    vb Code:
    1. Private Sub SearchBankAccount_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    2.                                         ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SearchBankAccount.Click
    3.  
    4.         Try
    5.             Dim LoadBankCodeLookup As New BankCodeLookup
    6.  
    7.  
    8.             With LoadBankCodeLookup
    9.                 .MdiParent = Me.MdiParent
    10.                 .Dock = DockStyle.None
    11.                 .TopMost = True
    12.                 .WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal
    13.                 .StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterParent
    14.                 .Show()
    15.             End With
    16.         Catch ex As Exception
    17.             MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString(), _
    18.                             "Exception", _
    19.                             MessageBoxButtons.OK, _
    20.                             MessageBoxIcon.Error, _
    21.                             MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)
    22.         End Try
    23.     End Sub

    That's the way MDI works. You can't maximise just one child. Either they're all maximised or none of them are.
