I dont understand why does maximized child form add " caption bar" between the MDI form's caption and the MenuStrip on the MDI form What is the purpose of this "caption bar" Is this a design fault, and can it be removed This wasnt the behaviour of child forms in before .NET visual studios.

I find that most people would want to have a child form whose max, min and close buttons are in line with the MDI form's Menu, and without the control box on the left side. Can this be achieved

Not sure what you mean: the .NET MDI interface appears to be the same as every other application. It sounds like the (child) form isn't actually maximized.

It was minimized, but you are correct, its behaviour is the same. I tried with new quick project, aand all is Ok. It seems to me that when I was importing my VB6 project (I wanted to reuse the interface, not the code, for people that will say its a bad idea to import vb6 program :) ), somehow the MDI form with menu, toolbar and statusbar wasnt imported propertly. After I have added new form and recreated those controls, everything was ok.

Thanks

Yes, the VB6 import capability, although a invaluable tool, has a few idisyncracies. I'd recommend checking all functionality if you imported the project. Glad you found the problem, though.
