How to avoid the WinForms MetroForm border white space?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: MetroForm |
.NET Framework: 4

Avoid MetroForm border white space

The MetroForm Border has white space. This space is maintained to avoid cropping of its MetroForm appearance in maximized state and to ease resizing behavior in Normal state.

Show the white space in MetroForm border


This white space can be hide by setting MetroForm Back color same as container control Back color. The following Code sample demonstrates the same.


//Set the back color of Panel 
this.panel1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Maroon;  
public Form1()  
   //Set the back color of MetroForm  
   this.BackColor = Color.Maroon;  


'Set the back color of Panel 
Me.panel1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Maroon
Public Sub New()
   'set the MetroForm Back color
   Me.BackColor = Color.Maroon
End Sub
