When I maximize my borderless form, the form covers the entire screen including the taskbar, which I don't want it to do. I'm finding it very difficult to find a solution to my problem on the net, all I've come up with is the below code, which displays the taskbar for a short time, but then disappears and the form still takes up the entire screen.
Private Sub TableLayoutPanel1_DoubleClick(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs) Handles TableLayoutPanel1.DoubleClick
If e.Location.Y < 30 Then
Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized
Me.ControlBox = True
Use the form's Load event to set its maximum size, like this:
Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load Me.MaximumSize = Screen.FromRectangle(Me.Bounds).WorkingArea.Size End Sub
Maximizing it now restricts the size to the monitor's working area, which is the monitor size minus the taskbars.
