Examples

The following code example demonstrates setting the MaximumSize property.

public:
   Form1()
      : Form()
   {
      
      //This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
      InitializeComponent();
      
      //Set the maximum size, so if user maximizes form, it 
      //will not cover entire desktop.  
      this->MaximumSize = System::Drawing::Size( 500, 500 );
   }
public Form1() : base()
{        

	//This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
	InitializeComponent();

	//Set the maximum size, so if user maximizes form, it 
	//will not cover entire desktop.  
	this.MaximumSize = new System.Drawing.Size(500, 500);


}
Public Sub New()
    MyBase.New()

    'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
    InitializeComponent()

    'Set the maximum size, so if user maximizes form, it 
    'will not cover entire desktop.  
    Me.MaximumSize = New Size(500, 500)


End Sub

Remarks

This property enables you to limit the size of a form to a specified maximum size. You can use this feature when displaying multiple windows at the same time, to ensure that a single window does not cause other windows to be hidden. If this property is set to a Size object that is 0 in height and 0 in width, the form will have no maximum size beyond the limits set by Windows.
