mdi child without controls

I'm opening an mdi child form maximized. I've set the controlbox to false,
the maximize button to false, the minimize button to false. Nevertheless,
when the child form opens, it has a minimize, maximize and mid size (don't
know what to call it) button - however, neither the maximize or minimize
buttons work - but the mid zise does! How can I turn it off?

Thanks for any help.

Try setting the form border style to none of Fixed mode.

That's a known "problem". Which version of .NET do you use?

Thanks Mahesh, but the parent imposes these onto the child forms. The only
way around it is to remove the buttons from the parent and size the children
precisely.
