I am working on Mdiforms, I took menustrip with one menustrip item(parent form), in that i took 3 child forms. when I open child forms those forms fit into parent form(child form maximize window). when i open childforms and close those child forms one by one there is no problem, all forms are maximized window size.

problem: when i open no.of childforms, the last childform is minimized the remaining
childforms(before open last childforms) are goes to normal window size(not in
maximum window size).

Que: how to maximize Child windows, not only childforms closing, even childforms minimized also(all child forms are maximized only even closed or minimized).

Look, listen to a good friendly advice: stop torturing yourself and chasing our your users with that MDI nonsense. Nearly everyone discourages it, and Microsoft worked hard to phase this thing out. Finally, MDI was not included in WPF even though it remains in System.Windows.Forms, presumably for compatibility with legacy code, but highly discouraged even by Microsoft where this concept was created.

There are many robust conceptions; the simplest one is the tabbed UI based on TabControl.
