Child MetroForm CaptionBar Color

Hi Guys,

I'm building an MDI application with MetroForms, everything works as expected :D, but when a child form is maximized the color of the CaptionButtons of the MDI child form are set to Black.

How can I prevent this or how can I change the color of the CaptionButtons of a child MetroForm when it's maximized?

Please see attached Pictures

1) Container Form
2) Container with child form (regular size)
3) Container with child form(maximized) - buttons are black!

We are not able to reproduce the reported behavior with MetroForm and additionally there are some differences in compared with the shared screenshots, when MetroForm is used MDI. Could you please check with the below sample and help us in reproducing the reported behavior? That will be helpful for us to analyze and provide prompt solution as earlier as possible.

Hi Kannan,

In the provided the child ControlBox disappears, you need to add a MenuStrip to the form.

Please see the attached image
