maximize off screen

P: n/a
I have a Winform (Composite UI Application Block) application that works great.

Users have discovered that double-clicking any window title bar in Microsoft
Windows XP is the same as clicking the Maximize/Minimize button. This works
with Microsoft Word, the My Computer window, and my Winform app. Still doing
great.

The problem is that when some users double-click the title bar of my WinForm
app, the window does go to maximum size, but the upper-left corner of the
window goes to the center of the screen, and 3/4 of the application window is
off the screen. This problem doesn't occur with other windows such as My
Computer.

Has anybody run into this before and come up with a generic fix? I hate the
idea of trying to solve this one video-driver at a time.

Thanks,
Randy

Hi,

Not really, first time I see something like that

Why don't you check the form's properties, in the properties window check
for those values that are bold , those were changes.
What if you create another form ( just a regular plain old vanila form) do
you get the same problem?

do you get the same problem if you just use the maximaxe button?
