Maximize form problem->bottom hidden by start bar

Hi

When I maximize a form in VB.Net 2003 the bottom of the form gets
hidden
by the start bar (so my status bar is invisible). How can I get my app
to maximize to the usable screen area above the start bar?

Thx Mrozu

Perhaps the easiest thing would be to set your task bar to auto hide.

How are you maximizing the form? By pressing the window maximize
button, or in code? If the latter, show us your code.

visible:/

OK, time for a little experiment: Start VS 2003, new VB WinForms
project. Put a StatusBar on the form. Run the project; maximize the
window. Does this maximize correctly? If yes, the issue is with your
form. If no, the issue is with your Windows settings in some way.
