Hi, I have a project that has an MDI Child Form containing a flex grid, when the user double clicks on a row of the flex grid another form loads up showing more details of the row that the user clicked on. The problem I'm getting is that if the first MDI Child form is set to maximized and the user double clicks on a row; the second MDI Child form is loaded fine but the first MDI Child form containing the flex grid suddenly shrinks.  Is there anyway way I can get the first MDI Child form to stay as maximized while the second MDI Child form loads to a set size? Thanks

Sorted this now. I just changed the second MDI Child form to a normal form (MDI Child property = False). This allows the first MDI Child form that contains the flex grid to stay maximized while the second form is loaded at a set size.
