I have two child forms open in an MDI container, i want one child form as maximized and the other in it's normal size. But when i tried to do this both the forms are moving to the same state, either both in maximized state or in normal size. Is there any way to get one form as maximized and other in normal size



I'm pretty sure that's just how MDI works - you could try cheating by resizing one child and hiding it's borders so that it looks like it's maximised, but I'm not sure how that'd behave!

This is the default behaviour of MDI parent. You cant make one form maximized and another which is the child of the same MDI to be normal.

Thanks for the answers, i found a solution for this in my project. I made the forms to be maximized as the child forms, opened the forms to be opened in normal size as show dialog outside the MDI and made the show in Task bar property to false
