Hi all,

I have an MDI Child in which I was assigning its minimum size so the user couldn't resize it smaller than the minimum size already assigned, but the MDI parent can have a smaller size.

I want to show an auto scroll if the MDI Parent has a size less than The MDI Child size, but I found that the MDI container can't have an auto scroll property true.

So please what can I do ?

Thanks in advance,
Smile | :)

You could set the Form.Autoscroll property[^]...

For sure I know this property but It doesn't work with the MDI Container property assigned.

When u check MDI forms property .there is an option Autoscroll property by default =False u must change the property False into true.

For sure I have done this but when I change the autoscroll property to true automatically it sets the MDI container property to false

I know this is old, but the answer is to set the MDI Parent as such, and the MDI Child Form to AutoScroll = true. I just had the same problem, this was what worked for me.
