BackColor of MDI parent

Is there any way to change the color of the background region of a form with its IsMdiContainer property set to True

Thanks

Hi Lance,

First of all, I would like to confirm my understanding of your issue.
From your description, I understand that you wants to set the backcolor of
the MDI parent.
Have I fully understood you? If there is anything I misunderstood, please
feel free to let me know.

I think you may try to take a look at the link below.

Please apply my suggestion above and let me know if it helps resolve your
problem.

Thanks to both of your replies. Good stuff. Just one more question though. The VS.NET help says that MdiClient "is not intended to be used directly from your code". I have no problem using it. Just wondering if I could run into problems down the road

Thanks

Hi Lance,

Thank you for your reply.
As the MSDN said, we do not recommend to use MDIClient in your own code
directly. But just for the issue "Change the Background Color for an MDI
Parent Form", you can achieve the job using the MDIClient as the KB said.
