The code below allows you to create a Window which is OnTop, or normal, depending on what your application is. It does not respond when the title bar is double clicked for maximize/restore. A visible menu bar is also available. Form Properties necessary for this implementation: ------------------------------------------------- MaxButton False Disabled in the code Minbutton True/False Depending on the needs of the application ControlBox True Needed for maximize/restore to work WindowState Maximized To maximize the form on loading BorderStyle 0-None Disables Alt+F4 for closing application BorderStyle 1-Fixed Single Worked best for this application --------------------------------------------------------------------------- BorderStyle of 2-Sizable is not a good choice, because the frame of the window shows up when you double-click on the title bar.
