Description: Add this control to a VB form and onjoy a number of great new features, including: the control over the size and position of the form when maximized, automatic resizing for fonts and controls (including controls that are added dynamically), transparent background, new items to system menu, the capability to be Always-on-top and to flash the caption to draw user's attention, and the FullScreen mode. The MBFormEx control exposes also a number of events that should have added to VB forms, such as ActivateApp and DeactivateApp, CompactingMemory, DisplayChanged, DragDropFiles, ItemSelect, Move, and SysItemClick (that fires when a system menu item has been clicked). The program comes with a Setup routine. Get the source code.
