I don''t know if this is a Windows Forms .NET issue or an XPMenus issue but here goes ... I have an MDI Parent window that uses XPMenus (has a MainFrameBarManager) that has two types of windows that it can display (let''s call them WindowA & WindowB). When either WindowA or WindowB is first opened, it''s WindowState is always Maximized. This works fine - the child window''s Minimize, Restore & Close buttons are displayed on the right side of the parent window''s menu. Here''s the scenario that doesn''t work. Open WindowA - initially Maximized. Then, open WindowB - also initially Maximized. Now, click the restore button on WindowB. This causes a grey area to appear where the parent menu was previously and the parent menu is now displayed below it. This grey area also contains Minimize, Restore & Close buttons that don''t seem to belong to anything - the WindowState of both WindowA & WindowB is Normal. I''ve tried all manner of refreshes but the only thing that gets rid of the "fake menu area" is if I manually minimize the parent window and then restore it. What is causing this? Thanks in advance!
