    making an MDI parent boarderless

    Is it possible to make an MDI parent form boarderless? If not how can I simulate this? I have and emmbedded project (much like a kiosk system) that requires a main form and 2-3 child forms that cannot "accidentaly" go behind the parent (if they do, there is no way to retreive them because there is no keyboard or mouse, only a touch screen)
    Any ideas are greatly appriciated

    Check out Windows Embedded XP. It's XP compontnetized: add only the components you need to build an OS

    Something is missing here: How could the child forms get behind the parent if they are inside it? Unless you are not making them as mdi child forms?

    I guess I'd try playing with the SetWindowLong API...

    They can't, that why I want to use a parent form, but if using the parent requires having a boarder and a title bar, ect. then I can't use it. You don't see title bars on kiosk you know? Thereofre I am faced making an SDI project and manually keeping the other forms on top.
    thank for the feedback

    Then I'd suggest using the SetParent API to put the child forms inside a "regular" form.
